Default Hedgie-safe paint for footprints?

Okay guys, I have a strange idea that I'd like to pull off...I found a Father's day card with two hedgehogs on it, and I'd like Ozzy to "sign" it for my boyfriend (her daddy ). So, does anyone know of any paint she could walk around in to walk on the card? I could sign it for her, but I think this would be a more personal approach for him. Any ideas?

What about non-toxic child safe stamp pads? It'd be much easier then paint. Just dab her foot/feet in the stamp pad and your good to go. No mess.

There is also non-toxic children's finger paint It's washable, so it'd come off easy.

Ooh, or homemade paint.

Thanks so much for the suggestions! I never thought about ink pads--looks like I'm going to get some tomorrow!

Pic of her and the card I found--let's hope this works!

my experience with ink pads, is if you get it on your skin it NEVER comes off!!! Maybe it's different with children's ink pads, but I feel like paint would be easier to clean off haha
an ink pad would give you a better "print" though....
I agree, i wanna see pics!

Cute idea. Children's paint that come in those little linked together tubs are non toxic and wash off easily. I used them to mark all my babies and it worked great. On occasion, mom would decide she didn't like the paint on babies and would go about licking it off and then of course annointing. So, instead of individually coloured babies, I'd end up with mom and babies all being the same multi colours. I guess some moms just wanted everyone to look the same.

I really wish I'd taken pictures of what some of them did. My most memorable was Lexie. I used red on one baby, blue on another, and the third had no colour. Ended up with 3 purple babies and a purple mom. I was always amazed by how a teeny tiny spot of paint would turn into so much once mom started licking. I often wondered if they had their own stash of paint.
