I started by stamping the Pig on the Shimmery White Cardstock with Basic Gray Archival ink.
I let it dry for a few moments and then began my watercoloring. I first watercolored the grass, leaf and stem with the ink from the top of the Pear Pizzazz ink pad. Then I turned to the pig. I took the ink from the Powder Pink ink pad and watercolored the pig adding more color where I thought it needed it. I colored in the feet using the Basic Gray marker.
I decided I wanted to use the small daisy from the Daisy Delight stamp set to use as the flower rather than the flower that was on the stamp. I stamped it on a Shimmery White scrap using Basic Gray ink and then colored with Daffodil Delight ink. To add more color around the center, I used the Daffodil Delight marker. I then fussy cut out the daisy and added one of the Glitter Enamel dots
I took the pig image and cut it out using the largest oval in the Stitched Shapes framelits. I also cut out the Pear Pizzazz layer using the Layering Ovals thinlets.
I layered the two ovals.
I next turned my attention to the Whisper White Layer on the card front. I used the Polka Dot Basics embossing folder and embossed the white piece.
I then put the card together. I first took a 5.50 piece of ribbon, tied it into a knot and adhered it to the front of the embossed layer using Fast Fuse. I put a glue dot underneath the knot to help hold down the ribbon on the front. Using Fast Fuse I added the embossed layer to the Powder Pink card base. Using dimensionals I added the two oval layers to the top. Using one of the new Mini Stampin' Dimensionals I added the Daisy to the card front.
