Tickled Pink

Splitcoast Clean and Simple - CAS2011springDT2

The next challenge in the Spring Showers CAS DT search is to use the colors pink, kraft, chocolate plus vanilla or white.  I have had the woodgrain technique on my "to try" list for awhile now and I decided these colors could work nicely for it.  I scored a piece of pink pirouette cardstock every half inch and then rubbed over it with my Crumb Cake (kraft) and Chocolate Chip ink pads for the grainy look. 

This cute piggy is from Kitchen Sink Stamps Ducks and Pigs set.  I sponged over the white panel with Crumb Cake ink to mute it a bit.  It's hard to tell, but the pig panel is popped up on dimensional tape.  I used a clear stardust glitter pen to outline each of the panels taped to the chocolate chip cardstock, just for some subtle sparkle on my card.  Then I thought a little bit of twine would go well with the rustic look of my card.  It's finished size is 4-1/4" square.

Thanks for stopping by and I wish you all the beary best!

How cute is that pig! Nicely marbled too. Never know what to expect when I look at your site, but am never disappointed. Beautiful creations and great variety. Keep up the inspirational work.
