Hettie's Hedgehog Christmas Card

This is my newest image Hettie Hedgehog's Fireplace.   Before I made the card, I thought sure that I had some red card stock available in my stash...but little do I have.   Guess if I plan to make many cards for the Christmas season I will need to replenish my stock!    In the left corner of the card I added a gift sticker or its more like a small chip board piece.   Colored in my image with prisma water color pencils.   I wanted a rather old fashioned look to the fireplace, so I did a bit of research.  Found a few that I liked, so I picked from 3.    Sometimes that's how it happens when I'm researching my subjects,  I may find one that I like, but end up using several to get the right angle or maybe its the way the face looks, or how the arm or hand is placed.   It can a bit of a challenge, if the idea doesn't come quite together.... but its something I enjoy doing.   I hope that you'll want to have Hettie Hedgehog grace your Christmas Cards,  you can find this cute little image over at my esty shop:  https://www.etsy.com/listing/543421448/hettie-hedgehog-christmas-fireplace?ref=shop_home_active_3

Have a lovely evening!
