Hello From the Pellet Factory

Today's first design team project is for the Mix It Up Challenge Blog where we are highlighting the "Smooshing" technique. I will also be entering my card over at Try Stampin' On Tuesday since I used both their sketch and their "Crazy Critters" theme.

To make the "smooshed" water color background, I used 2 colors of Brusho watercolor crystals on my craft sheet and sprayed a water based shimmer spray over top to activate the colors. I then picked up the colors on a 1/4 sheet of watercolor paper and used my heat tool to speed up the drying process between layers.

This quipy stamp set from Art Impressions is called Guinea Pig Out...the inside sentiment is something that all guinea pig owners will totally understand, because while they are super cute and sweet...piggies produce ALOT of waste for being such small creatures, lol!

I colored the cute piggie using Prisma colored pencils and mounted him with foam tape over an oval that I detailed with black pen faux stitching and watercolor splatters.

Until next time~
