Whimsy Showcase Day 7 - Happy Piggy!

Hello and welcome to Day 7 of our June Rubber & Die Release Showcase! On Wednesday (20 June) Whimsy Stamps released this month's new rubber designs, new Shapeology dies and new Shape EZ by TLC. 

From then until today the Whimsy Stamps DT and Special Guests are showcasing these fabulous new goodies with a daily mini blog hop. For today's last showcase day - and your last chance to win some yummy stamps ;-) - I came up with this creation using Piggy Bath from Whimsy's Meljens Design Collection:

I colored him using my Copic markers (R000, R00, R30, R32, RV42 for the pinks, E47, E44, E43 E41, E40 for the mud) and Prismas (French Grey 70% and 50% for shades on the piggy to give it a more dirty look and Light cerulean Blue for the outline). 

Whimsy Shapeology dies used: Corner dies and Notables 4 die, the corner die used in the upper left corner is a cuttlebug die. Sentiment is from the new set Definitions Notables 4. Papers are all Basic Grey (Bitter Sweet).


I added different Stickles to the image as well as some glitz from a Sakura glitter pen.



 The inside is decorated to match the outside.

 This card is available in my Etsy-Boutique
