Pool Piggies Guest Design Paper Creations by Mindy

May 22, 2017

Hello!! This is Mindy from Paper Creations by Mindy and I'm super excited to be Guest Designing for Gerda Steiner Designs for this super cute Pool Piggies stamp set! There are so many super fun summer cards I have in mind!

My first card is with a fun distressed background. I used my Tim Holtz distress inks but this background was one of a few that I was experimenting with and unfortunately forgot to write down my colors. Lesson learned! If I were to venture a guess - I would say Cracked Pistachio, Broken China and Faded Jeans. I diecut the distressed background with my Striped Sentiment Strip Die to create the white lines. I thought it broke up the background nicely.

I colored up my cute piggie and raft and cut them out with my Scan N Cut machine then pop dotted it onto my card front.



Copics
Raft - YR14, YR16, YR18
Shorts - B02, B04, YG09, YG06, YG03
Hooves - N6, N5, N4
Pig - BV00, R000, R00, R01, R02
