Pig out!

Playing with some more new stuff - I'm generally terrible at getting new digis printed out & USED, so I'm impressed with myself that I've managed to use all the different ones I purchased from From the Heart within the first month of having them!


Supplies: image & sentiment from From the Heart; Spectrum Noir markers; Pink Crushed Velvet Fun Flock from Doodlebug; papers from AC; Snow Writer; googly eyes; green rhinestones from Dollarama


I spent a ridiculously long time colouring the piggy only to end up with it looking like it had some sort of weird skin disease. Even the kids were like....mmmm, not your best work. Fun Flock to the rescue, a nice generous coat makes it fun to touch & covers up my less than stellar colouring job!

Since the digi & papers are new, I'm popping this in over at Naughty or Nice with a rare for me Nice entry, and at Chocolate, Coffee, & Cards where the challenge is NO CIRCLES. 



I spent most of this week working on a gift for a friend that I can't share yet, so I've been quiet - but once I hit PUBLISH I'm off to work with paper again :)
xoxo,
Jessi

I kinds 'forget' that I have digis.... so glad you coloured this little fella, love his fuzzy fur!

Lindsey said...

Dropping a cupcake is a little on the naughty side, though, wouldn't you say? My day today, I bet that was the one meant for me. :D Although I'm sure your colouring was better than you say, glad the fun flock came to the rescue! Like the frosting, too.

Dana said...

Hehe!! Awesome digi!! Love how you colored him and added the dimension to the cupcakes!! The sentiment is perfect! Super cute card!!

Debbie said...

Your piggy is just too cute! (I'm sure he would have been just as cute without the flocking!)
Love the frosting!!

Such a fun card! The pink striped paper made a great background for your darling flocked piggy.

I thought your pig looked fuzzy! I love that you flocked him. I can't flock worth a darn, maybe it look like whatever is moulting. Not a good look, but you rocked it!
