Hello There and Twitterpated Paper

This is my favorite new stamp set and b&t papers. You can only get this stamp set by ordering our Twitterpated Workshop kit, in the kit is Level 2 Twitterpated pack, Hello There stamp set, Chocolate ribbon round for $29.95.
I used: Hello There ss. Twitterpated b&t paper, colonial white, and cocoa cs.
Ink: Bamboo, brown bag, chocolate, sorbet, cocoa and topiary. Black marker.
wiggle eye and twine.

The first card is without embellishment.
The second has our new Organic chipboard buttons.
The third has our new Basic buttons.

The techniques used on these cards are: quick coloring for the hedgehog, inking mushroom with sorbet stamping on scratch paper and then rolling the edge of stamp in sorbet, called rolling. The stem is inked in bamboo and rolled in brown bag. The grass is stamped in first and second generation. Then the blades of grass are cut with an x-acto knife so the stem of the mushroom can be glued behind the grass. Repeated with the feet and bum of the hedgehog. The mushroom cap and hedgehog are attached with foam tape.

Thanks for looking.

Quick Color Tutorial

You need a sheet of Glossy cardstock, an x-acto knife, sponges and inkpads. Stamp the image as many times as it has parts. The hedgehog only has two, so I stamped two images. Cut out the back and then cut out the body.

Stamp the hedghog in bamboo on white daisy or colonial white cs.

Use black marker to color nose and eye.
Place the template over the body and sponge with bamboo, swiping from the glossy cs onto the image, continue until it is the color you want. Swipe chocolate ink onto the feet, tummy and head to highlight

Place template over the back of hedgehog and start sponging with brown bag, swiping from the glossy cs onto the image. Do not completely cover the bamboo.

Still using template use chocolate ink to hightlight the back, swiping from the glossy cs.

Here is the finished image.
