cQc #122 ~Love You!

Hello! Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend. I've been staring at the colors for the latest ColourQ challenge putting together this and that trying to make something work for days!! Goodness I don't know why these colors threw my for a loop, seems like it would be an easy combination! I think the problem was that I didn't have much in the way of the regal rose color. But somehow I managed to put together something acceptable ~HA!


 
I finally remembered a little pad of Anna Griffin journaling cards in my stash. A perfect array of pinks and reds to choose from! After playing around with different images I thought my sweet little Piglet from All Night Media would fill the open space nicely. I started with a panel of kraft cardstock stamping an Inkadinkado flourish on the left and right centers using black ink. Next I added the journaling card stamped with a teeny DeNami lady bug then stamped a few of them on the kraft panel. These are colored with a red Tombow marker and the wings glazed with a Gel pen. I punched a heart from kraft cardstock using my Fiskars punch and stamped it with the same flourish. This is added with foam tape. I stamped, colored and fussy cut Piglet then added him with foam tape as well. I positioned him to be grinning at a lady bug fluttering by! I made the tiny banner from a scrap and stamped it with a portion of a PTI sentiment from the Fruit Fusions: apple set. Aren't these shiny red heart buttons cute! The finished panel was added to a rose checked cardstock from Lasting Impressions. 

It took  me awhile to figure this one out! But I'm happy with the final results and hope you enjoy it too. Thanks for stopping by today ~Lisa

Oh sweet Piglet! He looks so adorable watching the ladybugs and I love the red as more of an accent rather than center stage!! You did a bang-up job on this one Lisa!
