Piggies I am using another song by the Beatles (because frankly they're a good band, and were influential early on in my life). And I LOVE this song, because it's a LOT of fun. "Everywhere there's lots of piggies, living piggy lives. You can see them out for dinner with their piggy wives."

This card was designed for Dutch Paper Crafts, I'm a part of their design team. This group of cards was definitely challenging for me, and this is one of the cards that I contemplated what to do with it for far longer than I should admit to. Featured in this card is the embossing folders from Lifestyle Crafts called 'Tile'.

You can see in the background of the card that I used one of the embossing folders from this package to create this card. To me this embossing folder reminds me of wedding quilts...but it was still a tough concept for me to tie together with a clever theme. So instead i eventually decided to use the cute little female piggy in her cute dress and bloomers, and hoping that it would look okay together. I think it does (let me know if you feel differently!) I felt the embossing folders didn't stand out enough without embellishing them (likely due to the paper I used). Again, you can see that I used the embossing folders to make a concave design as opposed to convex, so to help this pop, I colored in the concave shapes with silver on the pink, and orange on the yellow to make it a bit more noticeable.

The pig is from A Day for Daisies and was colored by copic this point i think it's pretty clear that I'm a big fan of A Day for Daisies images. I think that they're a lot of fun and since it takes me time to come up with my own drawings I often use her images as they are whimsical and fun!
