Hedgehog with a Stripy Balloon

Have you noticed a flurry of posts on my blog ? I've had crafter's block for a little while (probably because my craft room is also my workplace at the moment) but now the dam has burst and I can't stop!

Here I stamped the Penny Black hedgehog in black on kraft, adding some shading with a marker. I paper-pieced the balloon, stamped a sentiment and added some white gel pen and a stripy strip.

I'd like to enter:
Penny Black Saturday
Use Your Stuff  
The Spot  this is a new challenge to me..

This is super cute. I think you have a way with kraft cardstock!
Are schools in England not doing distance/virtual learning during your shutdown? Both my kids finished up the year virtually. Some schools are doing this better than others, but pretty much everyone is trying.

Have a good weekend! I hope your creative streak keeps on going!

Really cute!! Love the stripes, especially on the balloon. I’ve been in a crafty rut myself. Hoping it passes soon.

I love these Penny Black images and I have also been playing with the black, white kraft color combo! There is something kind of free-in about it! You created such a nice card! Thanks so much for joining us at the Alphabet Challenge for our “E” is for Earthbound Animal theme!

I love Kraft, and this combination with black and white looks smart. So effective with the stripes.
