Penny Black Saturday Challenge - Fussy & Fancy

As an antidote to last week's 'Clean & Simple' challenge, this week at the Penny Black Saturday Challenge, we want you to get:

'Fussy & Fancy'

The prize for this challenge is this gorgeous stamp:

Donated by my lovely DT buddy Pauline.

I've used one of the adorable hedgie's from the 'Wonderful' set by Penny Black, which I coloured using watercolour pencils. The papers are all by My Mind's Eye, the patterned ones are from the 'Penny Lane' collection, and the solid colours are the reverse sides of sheets from the '29th Street Market' collection. I used my Cuttlebug 'Victoria' folder for the embossing, sanding lightly over the raised pattern, and then distressed all of the edges a little. The sentiment is from the 'Cupcakes' set by Hero Arts, the flowers are Prima, the brads are BasicGrey, and the adhesive pearls are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

For more inspiration from my lovely DT buddies, please visit the Penny Black Saturday Challenge.
