I have created a card today which suits a couple of challenges.
I also decided to try the challenge from Simon Says which was to use 3 different papers.
You know this is not as easy as it sounds, well for me it was a challenge. Layering cardstock I find easier then layering 3 different papers.
In the end I decided to use the Cheerful Treat DSP pack and the piggy image from the Button Buddies stamp set.
I took colour inspiration from the DSP pack which is Concord Crush, Melon Mambo, Pink Pirouette, Bashful Blue, Lucky Limeade and Whisper White.
I stamped the little piggy in Melon Mambo and then used the 1-1/4” (3.2 cm) Circle punch for his body, which is one of the layers of DSP. I then layered him on the stamped image.
I stamped the image again in Melon Mambo and then punched his nose out with the small circle punch from the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack.
His little body and nose have been added to the card with Dimensionals to give him a little bit of depth.
Can’t you see that he is smiling at you with his lovely bright eyes – yes I used my favourite accessories, Rhinestones for his eyes!
