City Crafter Challenge Blog - Feeling Prickly


Our challenge at City Crafter  is 'feeling prickly' and I chose it as a good excuse to use the cactus stamps that are so popular at the moment. But it's not just cacti - anything prickly, like hedgehogs or pins....

Here I created a messy background with shimmery stains (Lindy's Stamp Gang). I stamped the hedgehogs (Paper Artsy) and coloured them with alcohol markers, then masked them off and stamped the cacti (MFT). The Ouch is from the same set ,and the rest of the sentiment is Sarah Hurley,

Our guest this week is Betty Wright. I hope you'll come and see what she's done, see the work of the DT and enter your own prickly project.
I'd like to enter:

Love your background, and lots of prickly stuff...I'm from Arizona so I love the variety of cacti and the flowers are so beautiful. Great card, and thanks for joining us at Aud Sentiments.
