This Little Piggy: Easy Sketch

Apr 5, 2018 | Gratitude, Thank You & Thanksgiving Cards | 3 comments

I love it when a design comes together 1, 2, 3!

I was already in a piggy frame of mind after finishing this project for last week’s On the CASE with Ann & Nicole so I was pleased as punch when I saw the ANIMAL block in this week’s Tic Tac Toe Challenge board! Design Team O is up this week so don’t forget to stop by and see all of my teammates creations!

Play along at the Tic Tac Toe Challenge - Inspiring you 8-ways each week! Find us @tttchallenge or tictactoechallenge.com. New challenges every Thursday!

I instantly honed in on the top row – animal, thank you, stripes and I went straight for the few remaining scraps I had from the Painted With Love DSP. I literally used my last scrap piece for this design, and, yes, it’s striped!

There’s such a strange sense of accomplishment when an entire pack of Designer Paper is used up! Don’t you think?

The great thing about this design is that I could replicate it over and over and just keep swapping out that background pattern for any that I might have on hand.

I thought I’d go one more time with the watercoloring on Whisper White cardstock with the help of clear gesso. This technique is really one that should be a staple in your toolbox if you like to watercolor a lot! Here’s a link to the video…
