I’ve been wanting to share this card ever since I got the set at Onstage but I didn’t want to share something that you couldn’t get for ages. I figure half a month isn’t so bad! So here is the This Little Piggy stamp set and the two in colors which were not released early. I saw the set in the catalog and thought it was maybe a little too cute for me but after seeing a demonstration I realised that it was on the cute side, yes, but it could still be a lot of fun and even elegant!
This Little Piggy is stamped in archival basic black on watercolor paper and then I used my brand new powder pink ink refill and an aquapainter to colour in the piggy. A little of the other new in color, berry burst for the flower with some daffodil delight and then pear pizzazz for the grass and leaf and the piggy was all coloured in. As you’ll probably have noticed, I don’t tend to do slanted mats, but after seeing all the swap cards at Onstage, I wanted to push myself a little. So here we have a berry burst mat cut using the Layering Squares framelits dies to slant behind the watercolor paper. Once I had the layers on my powder pink card base, I decided that there was something missing – maybe a ribbon. I don’t have any pear pizzazz ribbon from the new catalog yet so I used this beautiful 3/8″ mini chevron ribbon in old olive. I think it works! It’s wonderful ribbon; it’s smooth, silky and easy to tie – it’s a shame that it only comes in old olive, bermuda bay and crushed curry. However, if you’re a ribbon person, I think you’ll be happy – there are 56 new ribbons in the upcoming catalog!
