VIDEO | MFT Pig Time Fun

Hello there, I was over on the My Favorite Things YouTube Channel yesterday sharing a card made with the new Pig Time Fun set that was released this month. Pigs are my favourite animal, so of course, I fell in love with the cuteness of this set!

I started off by stamping the images from the MFT Pig Time Fun Stamp Set on to white cardstock with MFT Extreme Black Ink. I then coloured them with Copic Markers (the colours that I used are listed below the supplies area for reference) and then die cut them out using the MFT Pig Time Fun Die-namics

I took a 3.75" x 5" panel of white cardstock and masked off the bottom section. Above it, I added ink blending for the sky. Using Ink Blending Brushes, I applied Tim Holtz Distress Inks in Squeezed Lemonade, Mustard Seed, Wild Honey, Dried Marigold and Worn Lipstick for a sunset look. I removed the masking and then covered up the sky before placing the MFT Drifts & Hills Stencil below. I ink blended in-between for the ocean using Tim Holtz Distress Inks in Mermaid Lagoon and Prize Ribbon. 

The stencil was cleaned and then flipped over to mask off the water and then I added ink blending for the sand with Tim Holtz Distress Inks in Antique Linen and Gathered Twigs. I added some dots on top with Copic Markers (E55, E53, E50) as well as white gel pen 0.5 for some added texture. I also stamped the sentiment from the set on top. 

I took the wave die from the MFT Friends with Fins Die-namics set and die cut it in to the water, this made an opening for the boat to slot in to to create movement in the ocean and it not be so flat. The panel was then adhered to an A2 white card base with thin foam tape. The seagulls and pig were then added on top. To finish off, I added white gel pen highlights to the images, followed by Nuvo Crystal Glaze to the pig's nose. 


Here is the video showing how I made the card:

As I mention in the video, I think it would look good if I had some highlights in the water but I was worried that I was going to ruin it at that point. I might still try though! Thank you so much for stopping by today, I really do appreciate it. I hope you have a great day!

  1. It's absolutely adorable Michelle - a fantastic video too. I loved watching your beach scene come together with all the blending, masking and colouring. The die cut for the boat is a really cool touch too as it really helps set it into the scene. Gorgeous! xx
