Can You Digi It Disgruntled


You might need your sunglasses for my Disgruntled Pig today!
I'm trying out new color combinations for pig skin, a.k.a. swine flesh...

Copic markers are my coloring medium of choice, I combined E93 and RV23 for the pig skin.  It actually matched Stampin' Up! Cameo Coral cardstock beautifully.  The other Copic markers used are:
Y11, Y21, W0, B21, B23.  Other papers - Stampin' Up! Ballet Blue and Bazzill Lemon.

The reason for my card is the Can You Digi It challenge that starts today, the theme is "button it up" so I used a Cheery Lynn Designs button die.  My layout is a sketch from Merry Monday, I really like their sketches and discovered that Merry Monday is a Christmas Card Sketch challenge.  

I also used an old Stampin' Up! French Script background stamp to mimic the script around the pig.  I couldn't come up with another color for that band so I used Copic markers on a scrap of X Press it then stamped over it when the ink dried.  I think I'd like to play with this sketch a little more!

Thanks for visiting my blog today -

Jan I like your disgruntled pig...some days this is exactly how I feel - especially when cards and colouring don't turn out like they are meant to! hehe ;) Fun bright colours and I like the buttons xx
