Flying Pigs and Flowering Frogs

>> Wednesday, May 17, 2017

Warning - lots of fussy cutting in today's cards!

On my first card, I water-colored my background and then stamped three Birthday Party Pigs and cut out the pigs, balloons, and hats. I had to draw some of the balloon lines to connect the pigs.  I then heat embossed the new Picture Perfect Day Greeting.  Super fun card to make - I smiled the whole time I made it. 

On my next card, I mixed some gel medium and water colors and made a little pond.  Then I fussy cut and colored the Frog on a Log image.  I cut off the log and ran it through a woodgrain embossing folder. I then colored up and fussy cut some grass from the same image, plus the new Flowering Branch, Brush Pussy Willows, and Dogwood Branch (I doodled on the flowers to hide they were dogwoods). I put part of the Picture Perfect Day Greeting on the log and the remainder on the inside.

The cling stamp giveaway is still going on at DRS Designs - some lucky winner is going to receive $500 in free stamps - I can't wait to see who that will be!!!
