stencils, embossing & cute critters... all you need!

Hi again,

Today I would like to share a Panny Black creation with you. The critters are so cute & I love to spotlight them on my cards! Here you see me create my own background with a stencil & distress inks & the cute hedgehog on skates as the main focal point. Unfortunately I couldn't capture the subtle shine of the entire background (I have clear heat embossed it all to 'lock in the color' - never tried brefore but worked extremely well - and looks very neat).
Supplies used:
- SSS stencil
- Distress Inks
- Penny Black - Christmas Critters
- White Vellum
- Liquid Platinum & Seafoam embossing powder
- Watercolor pencils

Thanks for stopping by!

To create this card for the 2015 Christmas season (it's still snowing in Europe so I can't get enough of my wintery stash), I was inspired by the following:
SSS Monday Challenge - Winter Stamping
Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog
Penny Black - Stencils, Masks & Embossing folders
