It’s Your Birthday … Go WILD


I love this fun image from Art Impressions – Wild Hog Birthday.  This sweet pig has so much character!  I thought she deserved her shiny blue dress and lip gloss as she delivers her cupcake!

So when the Challenge over at AI is “Sweet Treats”, I just had to bring her out! LOL!

The image is water coloured with Distress Inks. Her dress has a double layer of clear Wink of Stella and some small silver dots.

For the background, I partially die cut a heart, then fussy cut around the rest of the image. The background piece is smooched with Distress Inks sprayed with Perfect Pearls water and a sprinkle of sweets from Lawn Fawn – Donut Worry and Year Seven.

I live in sunny Queensland, Australia with my husband and daughter. Since I was a child, I have always loved to create and have enjoyed all kinds of crafts, sewing and painting. China painting helped develop my understanding of colour and design. Over the last few years card making has taken up a major part of my crafting time as I love to play with new techniques and mediums. Since beginning my blog, entering various challenges has encouraged me to grow my skills and creativity.

  1. Got my HLS hat on now. Once more I just have to say how much I LOVE this card. That cupcake is so tempting – lucky I have just had a coffee. Been up north visiting my bff (you met her in June) crafting for the last 10 days so catching up on some commenting. So looking forward to coooooooooooler days.
