Hello crafty friends! Today Mama Elephant is kicking off the stamp Highlights for February and we are featuring the adorable and artsy Painting Piggies . This set is so great because it has so many wonderful art supplies and accessories. I especially love the paintbrushes and cans of dripping paint. The coordinating dies have a perfect little seam in them at the top of those paint cans to allow you to tuck a brush or something into the paint cans.
I created a little scene that I built up on an inblended background that I made using the Combo Rectangle Creative Cuts. I adore the scalloped background it makes, and how easy it is to achieve that two tone look by simply cutting two layered from colored cardstock, and inkblending your desired darker tone onto one of the layers. This way everything matches beautifully, but has just enough contrast to be noticeable.
I combined the images from the Painting Piggies set with two smaller piglets from the new Little Pig Agenda stamp and CC sets. I love that those small piggies fit into the canvas & frame stamp images. I surrounded a stamped in die cut sentiment from the new Lucky Friend stamp set, with some art supplies and added some tangerine colored sequins onto the scene.
This new release is so fun to create with and I hope you take the time to check out all of the inspiration from the entire Design Team. Thank you for stopping by,
