Hello Bluebird - Merry Pigs

Hello friends, today I'm back for Hello Bluebird and today I'll be using the Merry Pigs stamp set to create a simple Christmas card. 

To start off my project today I stamped out my images and coloured them in with Copic Markers.

Tip: I found getting this little piggy to line up correctly for die cutting kinda difficult. To get it perfect, line up the stamp inside of the die. Then pick it up with an acrylic block. That way it will be a perfect die cut image. 

Once my image were coloured in, I die cut them with the coordinating dies

(Copic Markers Used: R00, R11, R20, R22 / YG61, YG63, YG67 / C00 / R000, R00, R30 / R17, R29, R89 / Y11, Y13, Y15 / E95, E97, E99, E07 / E53, E55, E57)

For my background, I cut a slope onto a piece of scrap cardstock and used that as a stencil to blend the sky. I used Tumbled Glass and Salty Ocean for that, just for a light touch. I then adhered my scene in the centre. 

For the patterned paper, I took a piece from an old Bo Bunny paper pack and die cut an oval from the centre. I then adhered a coordinating size of scalloped oval and adhered it over top. I then added foam tape along the back and adhered it over my ink blended scene. 

Lastly, for the sentiment I curved it around the shape of the oval with a piece of acetate. Then I adhered the acetate to an acrylic block and stamped it down with black ink into place. That way the shape would be perfect. 

That finished up my card for today, I hope you enjoyed. It's very simple for me, but I kinda like it. 

Thanks for stopping by today and I'll see you soon.
