A pig in clover?

Ok so maybe not clover, but he has plenty of other flowers to enjoy! The image I have used today is the Stamp of the Month from From the Heart Stamps. It is on offer for the progressive challenge.

Materials used: SAM_2873(watermarked)
From the Heart Stamps – Hamlet Pigwig in the Planter
Docrafts Papermania papers – Country Life
X-Press It card
5inch square white card blank
Copic pens
little flowers from stash
adhesive gems

This is quite a simple card to do once the colouring is finished! It is just a straight forward matting and layering job.

The little accent flowers have a creamy pearl finish but I wanted to try and match them with the blue flowers surrounding Hamlet Pigwig so I used a Copic pen. The colour has not quite matched because of the surface of the flowers but it is near enough. The centers have adhesive gems in the middle.

Just time for a ‘Head’s Up’ for tomorrow, look out for my post at the start of the Dragon’s Lair Designs Blog Hop. There are freebies to pick up and prizes to be won.

Thank you for stopping by. Take care.

About Pippa

I started crafting at an early age though not always successfully, my pillowcase tennis dress has, thankfully, disappeared into history. Funnily sewing is not something I enjoy! My favourite crafty activity has to be card making, especially stamping which I have been doing for over 20 years and am still a beginner, there is always something new to learn. I also enjoy knitting and crochet. I am not an artist, cannot even draw a straight line with a ruler, but I love colouring in, which is why stamping appeals so much. I am married, have recently retired from being a part time HLTA at a local village primary school, have two grown up daughters, both married and a mad cat called Finnegan. That, in a nutshell, is me.
