Well, today’s Ways to Use It (WT482) Challenge on Splitcoast is Let the Sunshine In! So I’m thinking a sunshine greeting will work along with these silly pigs and their bubbles. When I first rec’d these images, I thought, oh cute! Then I started coloring them. Pigs are a little tough because it’s a challenge to get the color right. Bubbles are hard. So many colors and they need to be transparent. Pigs IN a bubble are ridiculous! But I tried. Actually the one pig isn’t really in the bubble on the image…there’s grass underfoot. I’m the idiot that put him inside the bubble. Oh well. Live and learn.
After I stamped the pig blowing the bubbles, I extended the grass a bit then did my “into the window” technique. It’s like out of the box, but it goes the other direction. I die cut a circle just big enough to put the other pig inside and colored it to hopefully look like a bubble. Added the lavender layer and a few enamel accent dots. The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25 and these are the Copics I used.
