Guest Designer Gig for CAS(E) This Sketch #274

Happy Thursday everyone!!

I am popping in with a Guest Designer post for CAS(E) this Sketch #274.

Here is the card I created:

Below is the sketch that inspired my card.

Instead of a circle like was in the sketch, I chose to use hexagon. I used the Hello Bluebird "Pig Day" stamp set for the images and the sentiment on this card.

I stamped the pig, the bird and the grass from the "Pig Day" stamp set and colored them in with Copic markers. I actually googled photos of pigs to color the pig more accurately. I wound up experimenting with a white gel pen over the Copics on the pig to give it some fine "fur."

I layered the octagons over a rectangle I had die cut out of patterned paper.

I stamped the sentiment from the same set under the image in black. I LOVE this stamp set and will be making a lot of cards with it.

I want to thank CAS(E) this Sketch for the chance to be a Guest Designer for this sketch!! I had so much FUN!!

I thank you for stopping by!! Have a FABULOUS day!!!
