Another Handsome Hedgehog Card by Dot Leathbridge

Hi everyone.
I am back today with another Handsome Hedgehog card
for you.
Last time I toyed with the idea of using different mushrooms
in the background as an after thought.
So this time I thought it might be fun to bring this idea to life.
You can see the other Handsome Hedgehog card here.
The 2 cards look totally different.

The mushrooms that have been added into the background are
Funny Fungi.
I think they go well with the zentangle image of Handsome Hedgehog.

Here are some more pics for you showing the background and
close ups.

The background has been made using alcohol inks
and a stencil on a gel plate.
As I like to fiddle and relax as I craft, my pencils were
used to add some more colour highlights and
to add more depth.  

There are some white patchy parts on the background which
often happens with gel printing.
This helped me decide where to place my images
so that more of the colourful background would show through.

The background was quite busy and full of colour so the Handsome Hedgehog
has been left in black and white.
I've also cut a small white border around the image. 
This is a great way to help an image stand out a little more on a busy background.

As I was using the Funny Fungi stamp this time, the flowers that come with
Handsome Hedgehog have been trimmed off the stamped image.

The white border was also cut around the Funny Fungi stamp.
How cute is this stamp?

I keep wanting to call him Harry ... I don't know why.

 The are only 2 stamp sets used on this card:

A reminder that there is still time for you to enter our Mood Board challenge
