This little piggy...

>> Wednesday, July 10, 2013


 For a simple looking card, this baby took me quite a while!

To be honest, I started this card about 3 months ago and have gone back to it several times.  The one thing that has stopped me over and over from finishing it is that the 3 little piggies all needed to be fussy cut, and I really have to be in the right mood for that much detail cutting :)

I started this card by stamping our Vicki's Versatile Background in brown ink and then sponging on taupe and brown inks.  The Hogwash Saying was stamped in 3 parts using brown ink and then I used a black pen to outline the "hogwash".   As I mentioned, our Bathtime Buddies were stamped on a separate piece of paper using brown ink.  I colored them using a pink pencil and then fussy cut them (eventually :) and attached them to my card which was then attached to a folded pink card.

Thanks so much for stopping by~

Don't forget you still have until 6pm tonight to link a card with our current Summer Fun challenge!   Remember to check back tomorrow to see if you're our winner and see what our next challenge is!!

So cute, Sue! I love fussy cutting but I guess that makes me really weird, lol. Great job!

I have to be in the mood to fussy cut too. That, or I really screwed up coloring outside of the! Love the placement of the pigs with the sentiment! Great card :)

Might be simple and might have taken you a long time, but the results are worth it--I love the stamped and inked background. It really looks like store bought paper!
