When Pigs Fly

Spring colors are being featured for the latest challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments.
We've got three spunky hues to bring out the sweet feelings of the new season.  It's past time to say goodbye to winter and hello spring.  To complement the bursting blossoms and leaves use Flirty Flamingo, Soft Sky, and Lemon Lime Twist in your card and project creations today.
For my flying pig card I made a Tree Rings blended background on watercolor paper with the three challenge colors.  Then I took a Mini Mister to spritz water on the ink to bleed and move the ink a bit.    My next layers were cut using the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits and I think they perfectly echo the tree rings and highlight my flying pig.
I watercolored the pig with an Aquapainter and ink from the lid of my ink pads.  She is coated in Wink of Stella and Dazzling Diamonds Gliter.  Take a super close look and you will see that I dotted in a bit of color into the "she believed she could..."  This gives it just a hint of interest, color, and depth.  I do love adding silver touches, so I have a piece of Silver Glimmer peaking out of the bottom and Basic Rhinestones dotted all over.
