Hello Everyone! I hope you are all enjoying the increasingly beautiful weather everyday. What a treat from the cold and dreary days!!
It is time again for a new sketch challenge over at Peachy Keen Stamps. I decided to do a layout to follow the sketch. I thought that PK-202 Tubby Time would be perfect for a bath picture of my twins. First because there are two pigs in the tub on the stamp and second I call them my little piggies all the time. After getting halfway done with the whole thing I realized I didn't have a picture that would be appropriate to put on a blog of the two of them together so I had to switch gears. My daughter Mia gained the nick name Piglet when she was born because every time she cried she would snort. It was to cute and toooo adorable. I wanted to stay with the pig theme for the layout so I used PK-201 Pig Peeker and face package instead. I just love all the "Peekers" from PKS!!
I stamped the pigs on two different types of patterned paper. I used Copics and my Prismacolor pencils to color/accent my little piggies as well as Liquid Glass from CTMH. For the sentiments I used some chipboard letters which I inked up with Stampin Up! Early Espresso ink. Next I covered them with Versamarker and Ultra Thick Embossing Powder to make it pop a little.
I wanted to jazz up the ribbon on the bottom a little bit so I just folded it over at random intervals and hot glued it down. I inked up the edges of the DP with Tim Holtz Frayed Burlap Distressing Ink.
Now on for some exciting news!!!!!!!!!! Keep your eyes peeled for a new PKS Spring Blog Hop to celebrate a HUGE new stamp release. You won't want to miss this one...trust me!!!! Once again Kathy over at Peachy Keen Stamps out did herself.
