This Little Piggy Meets Embossing Paste
Let's just take a moment and stare at this little piggy, because it's so cute and he deserves a moment in the spotlight. Awwwwwww! I stamped him on some Powder Pink cardstock then fussy cut him out. Initially I thought well it won't be that hard to fussy cut him, he's a pretty simple shape....then you get to the tail and well you start questioning your sanity and why you have these ideas! It really wasn't that bad and I fussy cut 3 more pigs (you'll see them next week!) so clearly managed to survive...LOL! After he was cut out he looked like he still needed some texture so I used my sponge dauber and some Powder Pink Ink and added some shadding to him. I used a Blushing Bride Marker to color his nose and the inside of his ears. I used a Smoky Slate Marker to color his hooves. The inside of this cards says 'loves you' so cute!!
I wanted to try more embossing paste so I pulled out the cloud stencil and made some fluffy clouds. I didn't smooth them out completely because well I don't think clouds are smooth and 2 dimensional. I left some rougher areas on some of them to add extra texture. After it dried I didn't like the white on white texture so I added a tiny bit of shading to the clouds with some Soft Sky ink and a sponge dauber. I added some Lemon Lime Twist grass with a sponge dauber and ink . This little guy is so stinkin' cute!
