A little while back my niece asked me if I would design her 18th Birthday invitations - the only brief she gave me was that they had to be pink and glittery! My niece is a real "girly girl" - yes, pink is her favourite colour, she loves and teaches classical ballet, is very much a fashionista etc etc. However, she has the most unusual pet - no cute kittens or toy poodles for this girl - she owns a "black" miniature pig!!
This is Miss Kara - my nieces pet pig! - and this is the card I made for her birthday next weekend.
Of course Tilda with Piglet(from the Magnolia 2009 So Jolly & Under the Mistletoe Collection) was the perfect choice of stamp for my card, but I actually found it a little difficult to colour in! I think my pig blends into Miss Tilda's clothes a bit too much??? - I did add some highlights to the clothing with a white gel pen to give them a bit more definition, but I'm not sure it helped? Apart from that, I think it turned out ok.
I outlined my pink areas with a pink ( Blossom)Spica pen. I cut my "18" from the Quickutz Blossom Alphabet Set - coloured it with RV10 & RV21 and also outlined it with the Blossom Spica pen. The pink cardstock is from Creative Memories and called "Pink Lemonade", the blues are "left-overs" from my stash, so I am not sure of names. The sentiment I typed up on the computer using the font Pharmacy. The white lace tag is from the Martha Stewart collection.
