A blog devoted to the cards I make in my tiny upstairs space. When my sister stays there, she calls it an "artist's garret". I'm not an artist, but am an enthusiastic cardmaker - hence the title "Cardmaker's Garret".

Hedgehog and Heart

Finally getting this posted for two Penny Black challenges:

Penny Black and More "Animals, Birds, or Butterflies"

Penny Black Saturday Challenge "Love is in the Air"

The adorable Penny Black hedgehog is stamped and painted on watercolour paper.  I bordered him with a heart wreath die cut, bordered the panel with the same red, added a sentiment, and popped it up on fun foam.

I think that's it for Valentine posts.  I'll be back to Christmas cards next time!

Stamps - Penny Black hedgehog, SU sentiment
Ink - Archival Jet Black, SU Real Red
Paper - watercolour paper, white and red cs
Size - A2
Accessories - heart wreath die, watercolour paints, fun foam
