Over the Hedge II

Hello again

My blog post today is nothing to do with the film but everything to do with Craft Consortiums stunning new paper collection – as designed by Melissa Lowry


I wanted to make some cards that used bright colours ,making them appealing to children. The character stamps of Olivia the Owl, Harry the hedgehog and Henry the fox were perfect for this task. I used the blackest ink I could find – Versafine Clare and set about stamping parts of the creatures onto 2cm squares.

I wanted to give the illusion that Olivia was flying through the card in slow motion.—-

Henry is hiding behind a tree trunk playing peek-a-boo…….

And poor little Harry has been startled and is rolling into a ball.

As you can see all 3 stamps are beautifully illustrated and the ink shows up the design to perfection. Each card is finished off with a small piece of the 12×12 paper from the stunning pad.

These are the items I used

You can follow Craft Consortium on Facebook and Instagram. Check out their FB Group too for great inspiration


Much love x Elisabeth x
