Party Pigs have fun!

Hi Bloggers.

Had a brilliant day yesterday with my workshop ladies. My next workshop is in just 4 weeks on Saturday 19th August with special guest Lisa Horton. Bookings are being taken now via my website here.

I have a fun card for you today -

The background is one of my many mopped up ink backgrounds. This one is with various Cosmic Shimmer Chalk Clouds. There's a bit of Toasted Rose, Princess Pink, Terracotta and Bundled Sage on this one.

I stamped the Woodware Party Pigs and a couple of the sentiments from the same set using Onyx Black Versafine Ink. I trimmed my piece and edged with Princess Pink CS Chalk Cloud using a Smoothie.

I decided to make the background most of the colouring on the pigs. I added a few highlights though on the hats and the dickie bow. I popped a little Bundled Sage and Princess Pink Chalk Cloud into their respective pot lids using Smoothies. I picked the colour up using a Water Brush and added as shown.

I matted onto Black Card and then popped onto a Coconut White Card blank. I finished my card by adding a 5mm Black Pearl to each corner.

Thanks for stopping by.
