This Mystery Smelled Like Bacon!


It's time once again to reveal the Mystery image that was sent to us for this round of Mystery swapping.

I thought it was the cutest thing ever....but so made me want some bacon.... ***giggle***

Here' what I did with the image:

So I went a little crazy with the faux stitching. :)
I colored the image with watercolor pencils and a blender pen. I made stitches on the piggy's quilt with my brown SU! marker. Then I inked the edges with some gray ink and added some gray stitching too. The DCWV paper I used behind the image already had stitching on it. SCORE! Then I added a strip of white card stock behind that and added more stitching. And.....as if that wasn't enough, I added more stitches to the edges of the kraft card base with a white gel pen. Whew! That's a lot of stitching!!! (oh yeah, there is a white strip inside the card that also has stitching added to it!)
For my embellishments, I just added some espresso ribbon and a pearl flower.

How about you? Are you feeling under the weather? Would this card get you close to "cured"? :) I can't wait to see what the other Mysterious ladies did with this image!

Until next time...
Blessings...
