Great Impressions DT - Rudy's Latest Dirt

Ever wonder how to call a pig? I did. Started out asking my husband what kind of noises pigs make and he started snorting and oinking...making me laugh!
Being a bit of a city girl, I decided I should find out...hello YouTube!

I'm not sure I've figured out how to call a pig, yet, but I've got one for you, anyway...
and he's darn cute!

Lots of 'dirty' details on this card...sponged die cuts, Distress Embossing powder, paper piecing...the dirt was made using versa mark reinker straight out of the bottle onto the card. Use the tip to spread it around for the 'splats' and movement. Dump on some Distress Embossing powder and hit it with the heat gun...instant dirt...and you don't have to clean it up!

A handmade card is a great way to stay in touch with friends...
especially the ones you want to dish the dirt with!

You know you want to have Rudy for's where you can get him!
