This Little Piggy Says ...

Hello there, today I have a card to share using the adorable Pig Day stamp set and dies from Hello Bluebird. I kindly received these as a gift from a friend and of course, I love them! I coloured the pig as part of The Daily Marker 30 Day Challenge, I am sharing my progress with that over on Instagram, if you are interested.

I started off by stamping the pig from the Pig Day set onto white cardstock with black ink. I coloured it with Copic Markers and cut out with the coordinating die. He was then set aside while I worked on the background. I took a piece of Yupo paper and first added some Alcohol ink Blending Solution to it. I then added drops of Amethyst and Cool Peri alcohol inks, followed by more blending solution. This was then set aside to dry.

Once dry, I die cut the alcohol piece using a Hero Arts Nesting Hearts Infinity Die and added this to an A2 white card base with tape runner. I cut off the part hanging off the card and then took the sentiments from the Pig Day set and stamped them on to black cardstock with Versamark Ink. I applied super fine embossing powder and heat set. These were then cut in to strips using the SSS Nesting Banners Dies and added to the card with foam tape. I added the pig on top with more foam tape. To finish off, I added a few Pink Moonstone Sequins and then Crystal Glaze on the pig's nose.
