Splashing about in the Rain

H is for ......Hedgehog which is my chosen word for the Alpha Challenge at The Craft Barn. I have to admit that this letter had me scratching my head ......just couldn't seem to get anything on paper so while rummaging  through my stamps for some inspiration I came across these Penny Black stamps which have not been out to play for  a very long time (hangs head in shame) they are so cute I just couldn't resist....

 
 
I used Pool ranger paint dabber for the background which I then wiped off with a wet baby wipe, water coloured my images with Distress Inks, Barn Door, Vintage Photo, bubble wrap and pearl paint dabber were used to stamp on the background I also used a selection of background stamps from Creative Expressions



On the closeup the pearl paint is shinning and hiding the words - sorry

Again thanks to everyone who visited my blog and left comments I had great fun visiting the entries for the last challenge and seeing some great pages.  I may be back with another page later

'till next time;  I'm off now to visit the other entries if you have chance pop over to see some great work!
