A Silly Stack of Pigs

     We start a new challenge today over at QKR Stampede and our theme this week is "Autumn Leaves."  That's so appropriate for an early fall card but you know my odd sense of humor -- I had to something a bit different and funny.  :-D  I started by choosing Digi 16913 "Stacked Pigs" as my main image and used a monochrome/ neutral color combo I found at City Crafter (see below.)


Colors from the inspiration photo at City Crafter.


     This is really a very simple card, intended to be masculine.  Since our challenge theme involves 'leaves', I also used the Digi 3901 "Leaf"  and printed it several times in different sizes.  All the leaves and the pigs were colored with a combination of my ProMarkers and a few Copics.

     I hand cut everything, including the silly sentiment, then added everything to a kraft card base.  I matted the sentiment and the pigs with black CS and mounted the pigs on dimension dots.  As a final touch, I added the bow which originally had been white but I 'dyed' it with a ProMarker.

  8. So cute! Not long I had a stack of piggies in my house - two male and two female guinea pigs. I found a wonderful home for the males, so now I just have two little girls.
