"Sweets for my Sooeet" - High Hopes Ch#16

This week is my turn to state the challenge for the week!!...I would like to see Lace on your card...it can be any kind....fabric lace..paper punch...lace doilies...it all qualifies!! Have Fun!!

For more inspiration check out the Beautiful creations made by all the Divas on the High Hopes Challenge Blog!

For this card I've used one of my favorite High Hopes piggy...."Sow Soo-eet Piggy" and the sentiment "Sweets For My Sooeet". These are also the 2 stamps you can win randomly by participating in this weeks challenge.

I used the Fabulous SC213 sketch for this card.

The piggy is colored with prismacolor pencils (oms) and twinkling h20's to deepen the shading.

Both the piggy and the sentiment is popped up on foamy's. I've added red stickles to the heart on the piggy's shirt.

There is lace along both sides of the panel behind the piggy ....also a paper doily....and lace across the bottom of the card and in the ribbon blossom.

I made another ribbon type blossom adding this cute green button I found in my stash....I was happy to see it kind of matches the button on his shirt...in shape anyway.

Paper: GP white, dcwv, prima marketing, cloud 2, costco, paper doily

Ink: versafine black, bashful blue, bordering blue, creamy caramel, close to cocoa, ruby red

Accessories: flowers, brad, button, cord, ribbon, lace, nesties, stickles, acrylic paint, stitching, paper doily.

Have a Wonderful Sunday Everyone!!...and Thank You for your Wonderful Comments!!

Hi Ila, I just love your card, the pig is just a sweetie lol, and the papers and lace are so gorgeous and you've sewn it all down too! I cannot use a sewing machine at all, I don't seem to be able to control them and my lines are all wonky lol so I think I'll steer clear. Just a beauty of a card.x

Crissy Armstrong said...

Ila, thanks for hosting this challenge, it was a good one, and proved to offer me quite the adventure this weekend! lol First of all, your coloring; where do I begin? The shirt on the pig is shaded beautifully, with realistic highlights where highlights really ought to be! I love how you continued the "roll line" along the top and bottom of the middle "roll" by your use of darker shading. It really emphasizes the portliness of this porker! ha ha! So cute! I just giggle when I see your brown chocolate smears on his face and shirt too. I really love your soft blue background and soft brown ground, and then how you spattered it lightly with brown too. Great detail. Gorgeous layering and distressing, love your white lace doily!!! And beautiful DP. Love the ribbon and lace under the heart button too! Just gorgeous!
