Porcine Pal

This card was made especially for my friend who loves (you guessed it!) - pigs. The image is one from Precious Moments and was coloured, as I usually do, with Promarkers.  A little undecided as as to whether to give the pair water or mud to play in, but chose the former as I have used 'mud' before, LOL. Not sure if I have coloured the water entirely to my satisfaction, but not the easiest of substances to colour is it?

I did, it probably goes without saying now, use my Cameo to create the cut files & this time I made the frame to echo the papers I had chosen from Design House Digital (a combination of some from Gennifer Bursett and Celeste Knight). As for the layout of the card front I chose the sketch over at Sketchy Colours this week.

Opened up & laid flat.
The inside of the card was constructed using the same papers as on the front but I chose a digi sentiment from Bird's Cards to layer up (the white rectangle & mat are of course for me to write on before I send it - it is my friend's birthday Christmas Day).

Happy crafting everyone.

Tine :)

  26. You just made my heart skip a beat. I <3 LOVE <3 Precious Moments. I've been collecting them since High School. My stamp collection on them isn't very big. I just have one PM stamp that says Love One Another with the children sitting on a tree stump. Most of my PM's are ornaments and home decor.
