You make me happy

I bought this adorable piggy set from Stampin' Up at the time of the new catalogue release in June. It's not a brand new one, but I kept thinking about it since I saw it in the last catalogue, and decided it had to be added to my collection. I've used it a couple of times and it's great for colouring and also for just plain stamping. They are just hilarious!

I stamped it onto some Copic friendly cardstock with some light ink - I use Desert Sand - and decided I had to try no line colouring again. I find this incredibly difficult as I have still to grasp the concept of light source and shading, but unless I practice I will never get it!

I have done my best with getting the shading and the particular pink correct, and I'm actually relatively pleased with it for once.

After colouring, I stamped over the sentiment (it's attached to the image) with Tuxedo Black - this is where a stamping press works really well as you can leave it on and then stamp again and know it will be in the right place.

I then cut it down and mounted it off set onto a card blank with some Lawn Fawn Let's Polka paper on it - one of my favourite paper pads ever!

Thank you all of you who visit and leave comments, it is appreciated more than you will know. You make me happy :)

I do love how your colouring turned out, Ruth, and I can totally see why you fell in love with these cuties. I felt the same way about the cute piglets by MFT, which I hope to ink up very soon.

I think your colouring on this cutie is fabulous! You can tell you have been putting the practice in as it's getting better and better each time. No line colouring is so hard and you have done a great job. Really good choice of pinks too! Love it! Xx
