Birthday Ham

July 4, 2016

Happy 4th of July,

Hope everyone’s weekend has gone well.  Today, I am posting a card I created for a sketch challenge over on My Favorite Things but never got around to entering it.  I decided to play along using MFT’s Hog Heaven which was part of the June 2016 release.  Isn’t he just adorable?  The set also includes a piggy with wings, one dancing, and one holding a heart.  I cannot wait until I can get them all colored up.

Copic: E93, YR02, R02, C5, B12, B4, R46, YG05, YG17, and YG25

As always my image is stamped using Memento Tuxedo Black ink on some Hammermill #100 cardstock.  I then colored him up using Copic marker and die cut him out with the matching die.  The trees are MFT’s Trees in the Forest die also cut out of Hammermill and colored using Copics.

My trees, piggy and his oval shadow were adhered to a piece of Trail Mix Designer Paper cut out using the circle from MFT’s new flop card die.  The square base is a spellbinders die and the woodgrain paper is also from the Trail Mix Designer Pack all adhered to a card base made from MFT’s Orange Fizz card stock.

      Thank you so much Shelley. Apologies for the late reply but my computer crashed yesterday and I have been very slowly trying to get everything back to how it was. Hope everything is going well:-)
