Watercolor Hedgehugs!

Hello blogger friends,

I have a cute Lawn Fawn card to share today that uses the adorable Hedgehogs from the Sending Hedgehugs set.   I made this card as a get well card for my brother in law who just had surgery.  I hope it makes him smile!

 
 
I used my distress inks to watercolor the little hedgehogs.  I first stamped them in Vintage Photo ink and then used a waterbrush to pull the color into the image.  I added some wild honey marker to the bodies, and used the same technique to pull that color in.  After it was dry, I went back and used the vintage photo marker to add some details that softened too much with the water.  I outlined the bodies and darkened the eyes.  I added a wash of blue for the sky and some green for the grass. 
 
I am entering this into Darlene's challenge over at Live Love Cards, where the theme is watercolor. 
 
Hope you are having a great day!
Laura
