Stamp Something - April Showers...

If you are looking for WHIMSY STAMPS new release blog hop and prize draw then you can find my post HERE.

Today's challenge at Stamp Something is SOMETHING APRIL SHOWERS. Today's sponsor is Whiff Of Joy!
I've used a cute Stampavie hedgehog and he's coloured with Derwent Inktense pencils. You can use those dry but if you wet them the pigment becomes ink and colour very vibrant. Once the ink dries it becomes waterproof. They are kinda cool to work with and I see myself  trying a lot of different things with them. They also work with mineral spirits so possibilities are truly endless.

The papers are from Echo Park Sweet Sumertime - love the colours!
Challenges:
Cute Card Thursday - Weather inspired
Pals Paper Arts - Use flowers
Crafts and Me - #30 Ribbon
A Spoonful Of Sugar -  All Creatures Great & Small
Kaboodle Doodles - cute and cuddly animals
Paper Playtime - Weather

Thanks for looking and happy crafting!
Hugs
