I know, I know! Hogs & Kisses. I just thought that sentiment from Papertrey Ink's reasonably new farm set was too adorable not to use. Not sure that I will get much mileage out of it being that it really doesn't work without the hogs does it? ...And I certainly don't get much call for hogs in my papercrafting, but hey. I was just mucking around with this set and the fab Chicken Wire Impression Plate (also from Papertrey Ink) and jumped at the chance to throw this card together using these fun elements. The chicken wire stamp is from Waltzingmouse Stamps however, and it's a good'un. If your after a nifty, easy as pie, chicken wire stamp to line up then I can, wholeheartedly, recommend this one. That smudgy bit of acrylic paint behind the stamped ATC from Tim Holtz Alterations is lick of Old Paper Distress Crackle Paint. I cannot say that I have absolutely gotten a firm hold on how to best use this paint, but I don't half mind it as I have tried it here. It adds the requisite "pig sty" feel to this puny card I think (well, that was the plan in any case). I am looking forward to creating a bit more with this collection of farm inspired goodies soon, that's for sure.
Many thanks for stopping by for a wee look-see. Your visits are appreciated so. Here's to an inspired day for us all! Oink!
