Happy Spring - Pigments of Imagination

This card was made for Little Acres Creations Birthday Celebration using Tuesday Morning Sketch Challenge #449. Piglets are enjoying wallowing in hot chocolate...surely better than dirt. Stamped the splash of chocolate on white cardstock, colored, stamped sentiment, layered scene on cardstock and adhered to my floral background card base. Stamped the cute Piglets on white cardstock, colored, fussy-cut and adhered with 3D thin foam tape laying across the chocolate. Instead of a flower...die cut a teapot to place on the corner with 3D thin foam tape, drew in the stream of hot chocolate and applied liquid glass.  

The theme is Nature and/or Coffee and is meant to inspire, not required, so let your imagination run "wild"! You are not required to use Little Acres Creations stamps, but if you have them...we'd love to see them! You can link up to other challenges, but your project should be created specifically for this challenge. You have until April 20th at 11:55 pm Pacific Time to link up. Don't forget about all of the other activities going on here through the 20th and so many more chances to win some big prizes! You can find all of the details by clicking on this link and visiting the main Celebration Post! 

Also used liquid glass on the piglets eyes, snout, tail and hoofs. Colored over the lid on the teapot with gold and used CTMH glitter pen on both the piglets and teapot. On the inside of the card used another one of the Piglet stamps and bordered with the same plaid design paper used on the front.
