Summer with the Wallaces

Hello, hello
It is already the third Thursday of the month and this means that it is also time for a new challenge over Lavinia World #31

Here is my inspiration for you, hope you like it and you will give it a try! 
For my project today I used Distress Oxides and embossing powder.
I have had the Wallace family stamp for some time and could never find inspiration to use it. So I decided to challenge myself.

So here is what I did

1. I cut the card base from 300gsm white card stock

2. Using Distress Oxides I made the background, I used Fired Bricks and Fossilized Amber. I just played on my panel and decided to leave a white strip, like a sun ray.
3. I stamped and embossed with Copper embossing powder the Creeping Vines

4. Then using Dragon Powder embossing powder i stamped and embossed the Butterflies
5. It was after I did this that it just popped in my head that I should use the cute hedgehogs, somehow. so I balck heat embossed them on the bottom sides of my card. At first i had another stamp in my mind, but after doing this, I think I made the right decision in choosing the Wallaces.
6. The upper side is made from a combination of Flower Flourish and Background Script.
7. Added some white gel pen to emphasize some shades and I also added 2 hearts from the background script stamp, right on top of the cute hedgehogs .
8. Final touches some Nuvo Drops and this is it!
Hope you like it.
