Hello crafty friends! I have a very fun card to share today that combines cute playful images and a punny sentiment. My favorite kind of card to make! The stamps and dies I used for this card come from a fairly new company - Miss Ink Stamps. There's a sale going on right now for the 4th of July holiday weekend. Now through July 7th, you can get 20% off storewide with code FIREWORKS
Stamps and dies used for today's card:
I started with an A2 card base. I blended a combo of Tumbled Glass and Salty Ocean Distress Oxide inks onto the top of the card front for the sky area. On a separate panel, I stamped and Copic colored the farm landscape background (Hay There stamp set). I fussy cut around the top edge and then layered it over the ink blended sky. I added two layers of grassy hills. My hills are a Distress Oxide ink blend of Mowed Lawn and Bundled Sage.
Now for the really fun part! I stamped and Copic colored several images from the Punny Farm Pigs set. I die cut the "HAY there" from black card stock. I then added the die cut greeting and colored images into the scene, but left room to stamp a sentiment directly onto one of the grassy hill layers. This fun sentiment also comes from the Punny Farm Pigs set. I get a lot of questions about what Copic colors I use to color pigs, so below is my go to combo.
The bulk of the pigs body is colored with E0000, E000, & E00. I use E11 & E13 for shading, hooves. and nose. To give the nose a pink tint, I go over it with R11. For all my Copic colored critters, I use R00 & R20 for the pink cheeks.
Thanks so much for joining me today!
