…and this little piggy did lunch!

Don’t forget there’s 50% off in the store until the end of the month.So why not pop over and grab a few.There’s such a great choice of beautiful images.

I’ve used Let’s Do Lunch from Digi Doodle Shop for my card.They’ve been coloured with Promarkers.I then went over with the Blender pen to soften the colours a little.I also layered up the piggies to add some dimension.

The idea just popped into my head to do this.I don’t know why I always set myself up for these things.I really hate fiddly cutting out!I don’t seem to have a part of my brain that says ‘That’s really not a good idea’!!I coloured the bottom image then coloured and cut out the piglets.Next I coloured and cut out just the middle one.I shaped them with my fingers and adhered them using sillicone glue so that I could vary the height of each piece.If you notice in the pic the feet are stuck down virtually flat.This gave more roundness to their bodies.Just what I set out to achieve – so maybe it was worth it after all!
