Piggy Wonder

Hello!!  I needed a card for a pig lover and this is what I made.  My background uses the Tim Holtz 3D Botanical Embossing Folder.  I inked the flat side of the folder with Wendy's Archival Ink Pink Peony (Ranger), misted my paper (Ranger Mixed Media Paper) with water, put the paper in the folder and ran it through my Vagabond.  At that moment it was already beautiful, but I didn't stop.  After drying the paper I used Ranger's Liquid Platinum Embossing powder on the paper.  With my powder ready to go, I flicked my paper with water, immediately added the embossing powder tapping off the excess, and melted the powder.  Next I added the Liquid Platinum powder to edges using embossing ink.  The pig is an old stamp.  I stamped it on Ranger Water Color Paper with Archival Ink Jet Black, die cut the oval (Sizzix, Tim Holtz Stitched Ovals), embossed the edge with Liquid Platinum, and added color to the pig with Distress Ink and a Water Brush.  Color was added to the Tim Holtz Idea-ology metal piece with Distress Crayon.
