Hi Everyone!
Today I am sharing a second card as a Guest Designer for Gerda Steiner Designs.
I made another summer inspired card using the
Pool Piggies 4x6 clear stamp set.

For the card, I started by water coloring a piece of water color cardstock with several blue distress inks then added some water droplets, finally I sprayed it with some shimmer mist to sparkle. This will be the water part of the river for the pig to float on.
Then, I took some kraft card stock and die cut it with some wavy border dies to look like the beach or shore, depending on where the river is, I added some dots with copic markers to look like sand. I also double stamped the sentiment in two colors of ink, with a misti stamp tool, in tan and brown.
Next, I stamped and colored the pig, then I stamped the round float and ball on some patterned paper and paper pieced the float.

I added some glossy accents to the ball, pig to look
like water droplets and to the fish for bubbles.
Then I added some stickers to the card for some accents.
The pig looks like he is having fun and so relaxed!!
Thanks again to Gerda and Macy for
letting me be a guest designer.
I hope to have inspired you !

Have a wonderful day!
