Pink Gem 'Mimi and pig' - Stamp Something Challenge

Hi everyone, hope you've had a good weekend. A card today for Stamp Something challenge and it's sketch something this week with a lovely sketch by Emily which I've flipped. I've used my gorgeous 'Mimi' and pig' stamp by Pink Gem Designs, she's so cute and lovely to colour too, I've watercoloured the image with distress inks and sponged all round the edges of the panel with black distress ink. Papers for the various panels of the sketch are BasicGrey cupcake and blue bazzil for matting and also for the bottom strip which is scored and wrapped with raffia. Everything is mounted on a white scalloped card blank sponged with black. Added a woodware sentiment, stickles and a basicgrey button to finish. TFL. Chris x

Wow! Chris this is so cute! Have you decoupaged the piggy's head? If not that is some amazing dimension you have achieved with your colouring. I adore Janet's designs and you have coloured Mimi in beautifully. Lovely fresh look to this one. Nice touch with the rafia.

Well I've made up my mind, you do something very special to an image when you colour it Chris. Rather than make them look cartoon like as most of us do, you make them seem real somehow...... do you get what I'm saying?! It's amazing!! xx

Janet said...
