Here is another of the Valentine digital images. You will recognize the inspiration for this if you are at all familiar with Whipper Snapper Designs. I love their kissing pigs and was inspired to create my own after seeing the image on their website. I drew pigs kissing while standing with arms wrapped around each other and sketched out a variety of different ideas but I just wasn't satisfied with anything other than this image of the pigs - nose to nose. This image just makes me smile.

The image is printed from my EPSON ARTISAN 710 printer then colored with Copic markers. I played along with a Splitcoaststampers challenge today which was called "CUT IT OUT". Sticking with the Valentine theme I used the new Designer Paper from Stampin'Up! as the background. I sponged the edges in Cameo Coral and Ruby Red then matted it on Real Red and Whisper White cardstock. As part of the SCS challenge I used a craft knife and cut-out the heart behind the pigs to let the Designer paper show through. Red buttons tied with red & white gingham ribbon cover the hearts on the pigs' "behinds". Pink Velour Ribbon and red & white gingham ribbon are tied around the card then a punched, sponged flower was popped up with dimensionals and topped with a red button.

All images can be viewed and purchased HERE. You can purchase the images individually for $3 each or the entire set for $17.95.

Thanks for visiting -
and until next time -
Happy Stamping.
