The Hello Bluebird pigs are some of my favourite critters. As there are lots of great images to choose from, I decided to create a card with four seasonal pigs.
My card base is 5.25 inches square. I’m really enjoying square card bases at the moment and this format works well for the four scenes I’m creating.
I used a square die set from my stash to die cut four white card squares. On each of the squares, I used distress oxide inks to add colour to represent each of the seasons.
All my pigs are coloured with copic markers. I use R00, R30, and R20 for pigs. I die cut them out with the coordinating dies
The spring pig is from the Beach Babes stamp set. I stamped some flowers and grass details on the scene, using images from the Pig Out and Strawberry Jam stamp sets. The butterfly is from the Bloom & Grow stamp set. Distress oxide background colours are spun sugar, kitsch flamingo, twisted citron and mowed lawn.
The summer pig is also from the Beach Babes stamp set, along with the sandcastle. Distress oxide background colours are tumbled glass, mermaid lagoon, antique linen and brushed corduroy.
The winter pig, candy cane and present are from the Merry Pigs stamp set. I stamped some snowflakes on the background. Distress oxide background colours are shaded lilac, spun sugar, squeezed lemonade and tumbled glass.
I adhered the four squares on the card base, then the images on top. I added some extra die cut layers behind the pigs and butterfly for dimension, with the other images adhered flat on the scenes.
