Hogs & Kisses

Hogs & Kisses card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps and dies from Avery Elle

Here's my card for the current challenge at CAS Colours and Sketches.  I used the layout for a punny love themed design featuring stamps from Avery Elle.

I colored up the pig image from the Hogs and Kisses stamp set with Copic markers, then used the matching die to cut out the colored image.  The set's "hogs & kisses" sentiment was stamped on the heart in the pig's hands in black ink.  To go with the image, I found a strip of XOXO patterned paper.  After edging the strip with contrasting red cardstock, I adhered it across the bottom of a very pale pink cardfront.  The image was added on top using foam tape for dimension.  I arranged a trio of red enamel hearts around the image as a fun accent.

Materials Used:
Hogs and Kisses stamp set, Hogs and Kisses dies (Avery Elle); Memento Tuxedo Black ink (Tsukineko/IMAGINE Crafts); markers (Copic); Rose Petals cardstock, red enamel hearts (Recollections); Head Over Heels 6x6 paper pad (Echo Park); foam tape
