Neon Hedgehugs!

Hello everyone! I wanted to share a fun little card that I created to play along with the Lawnscaping Challenge number 89!
I'm so glad I've decided to start playing along! These challenges force me to look at my crafting supplies in different ways. I created a few other cards using other stamps that are single layer as well. (maybe you'll see some of them here soon) Anyway, here's the super simple, super fun, single layer card:
I first stamped the hedgehogs, from the Lawn Fawn HedgeHugs stamp set, touching noses in StazOn black ink. I also used the Beep Boop Birthday stamp set for the little bow on the hedgehog. I then stamped them again on some Post-It note cards (so the sticky area is on the back) and fussy cut them so use as a mask. (the extra black ink is from another single layer card I made.)
 I then got out my Americana Neon Acrylic paints...and...painted!
I wish the photos did true justice to these fantastic colors!
 I then used my water color pencils to color in the hedgehogs.
I added the tiny heart stamp above them, along with the cute sentiment that comes with the set.I finished off the card by adding some Glossy Accents to the noses, eye, and heart.
The perfect 'pick-me-up' card that is easy to send through the mail!
