Ballet dancing hedgehogs!



Oh dear, this is not a very good photo!

Last night my daughter and I saw the Moscow Ballet Company perform 'Swan Lake' at the Civic Hall. It was tremendous!! This card is for the lady at Church who organised the tickets.

The challenge at Less is More is to use 3 squares on your Clean and Simple card, so I'm entering this there.

The hedgies are PB, of course! I cut them out and popped them on foam pads. I used Promarkers (surprise!!) and glittered their skirts. The squares were punched from plain card using a Woodware punch, then I went round the edges with Distress Inks: Shabby Shutters, Worn Lipstick and Broken China. The text is also PB.

Thanks for looking, and I hope you're keeping warm on this cold day!

luv, Mags x

Promarkers: Ivory, Pastel Pink, Cool Grey 1 - 4, China Blue, Blue Pearl, Mint Green, Pastel Green, Blossom, Pink Carnation

These are such cute images; your post reminded me of times with my daughter. I remember us seeing the Moscow ballet perform Swan Lake many years ago! Wonderful memories!
I love these images, I may have been inclined to mount them square to the card, but they are perfectly fine as they are.
Thanks for joining us again and we'll look forward to seeing you next week!
