Hey friends! I’m over on the Miss Ink Stamps blog today with a fun slimline featuring some of my favorite piggies around! I have a little cheater technique for a great card with little coloring on a huge detailed background too.
I started by stamping the Hay Daze scene image on a piece of golden cardstock with copic friendly ink. Then I came in with darker copics and gave selective color to my background scenes. Things that were green and red were easy to choose and then I used an orange on the sun so it wasn’t totally lost. Then I used a blending brush and light brown ink to ink up the edges of the whole panel.
Next, I stamped two piggies from Punny Farm Pigs and colored them with copics. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out. Then, so they didn’t stand out too much with their white border, I used a copic the same color as the cardstock to color in the edges of them. I used foam squares and popped them up on my scene panel.
Next, I placed the panel in my MISTI and stamped a sentiment from Punny Farm Pigs at the top. Then I added black glaze pen to the pigs’ eyes. Once that way dry I came back in with a white gel pen highlight. This gives the eyes a little shine and helps them stand out and bring the critters to life.
Last, I used liquid adhesive to adhered my panel to a slimline card base measuring 3.5×8.5 inches. I didn’t add any sparkle or shine to this card because I just loved how the muted tones really felt like fall. I didn’t want to detract from that, but if you prefer, you totally could add all the usual glitz and glam!
I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!
