Hambo Stamps Artist Pig

My card today is for this weeks Hambo Hoedown, hehehe...

I've been having so much fun playing in the Hambo Hoedown challenges, I really enjoy using their cute digital images!  This week's image is Artist Pig and the challenge is a sketch, you can use the image provided from playing along last week or any other Hambo Stamps image/stamp you'd like.  

You might have noticed over in my sidebar that I'm one of Hambo Stamps newest Bacon Bits too!  

I LOVE sketches, this one had me thinking... that curve on the edge of the image panel had me experimenting with Spellbinders dies.  I settled on an oval die to trim the end and make it look nice.  Oh I tried cutting it out with scissors...  that's why the pig is cut out and popped on my card today, lol.  

I colored the Artist Pig with Copic markers B23, B24, B28, BG11, BG13, R20, R30, R32, Y13, Y15, RV23, R27, R29, E40, E41, E42, N1, N3, N5.  I've been experimenting with "pig skin" colors recently and I think R30 and R20 are good, if a little darker shadows are needed R32 blended in works well.

On the sketch the top panel that I made yellow is left blank and the sentiment goes in the lower rectangle.  I just had to use the "you color my world" on top and cropped "pig"casso! out of another sentiment that came in this cute digital stamp set.
