Walking Tessa - Sneak Peek!

Hi Stampers!

Welcome to the FINAL day of my Crafty Sentiments Designs Sneak Peeks of the new September Release that will be available tomorrow! This image is called Walking Tessa and features a sweet country girl walking her little pet piggy! Take a look...

I decided to color my little piggy black because I wanted to be a little bit different :) A lot of the little pot bellied mini pigs people get as pets are black so little Tessa will fit right in :) I remember when I was teenager I wanted a little mini pot-bellied piggy for a pet but my Mom never would let me - LOL!

I wanted my card to have a "country feel" so I decided to ink up a Farm background stamp I had from There She Goes stamps. I cut it out with a Stampin Up! labels die and also created a frame in my background paper with a larger die from the same set. Nothing says Country to me more than Gingham Prints and it is also my favorite to use ...but I didn't want it to overpower the card, I wanted just a pop of it so I just layered it inside the frame.

My Jeans looking Designer paper is from the Bo Bunny Prairie Chic paper pack and the Gingham Print is from the Simple Stories Summer Fresh paper pack.  I also used the My Favorite Things Die-Namics Barb Wire Fence Die and the grass is from C.C. Designs Grass Border Die. And of know me... I sponged everything with ...YEP... Tim Holtz Walnut Stain Distress Ink! LOL! That super cute sentiment is also a from the September Crafty Sentiments Designs release as well!

Here is a closer look at my Walking Tessa image...

I colored this using copic markers. I did her hair with one of my favorite hair color combinations... E13, E15, E18 which actually come all together in the Copic Skin Tones Set. Tessa was colored using the Warm Grays - W00, W01, W03, W05 and her blush is a mix of R20 and E04. See her little red bling gem on her collar :)
