A Pig with a Rash



Rash???  Measles???   Maybe he's just super duper embarrassed!  No matter since I think he's going to put a smile on someone's face.  The image is for a progressive challenge over at From the Heart Stamps.  Cute images there and if you play along each month you get the next image free.

I colored him with Copics and then gave him his "rash" with Copic solution.  The Polaroid was popped up on dimensionals and then he was placed behind it.  I used a MFT die for the sentiment that was shimmered up with a Wink of Stella pen and and a Darice embossing folder.

Ok, are you smiling yet??

Thanks for stopping by..........
Lynn

LOL!! Yes, he does make me smile Lynn!! :) Love this "snapshot" design for him and your fun background texture too!! :) Really creative and fun!!

*Vicki* said...

LOL!! Lynn, he doesn't have a rash!! He's so cute!! I just used my Copics in the R30, R11 & R00 and blended it out. The dino card I did had some "dots" as I was going for a "texture"..not sure if I accomplished it or not! LOL!!

Your pig is so cute!! :)

I am with you on the smile and I think 'rash' adds to the cute!!! Love how you framed him too!

MaryH said...

Oh this DID make me smile. I'm not a pig lover, but I do like cute ones (same thing with the Frogs that DH likes), and this guy is a winner. Love his rash - you did that technique splendidly. Also like the embossing background and those bold pink letters against that black surface(and of course your wonderful dots paper). Playing catchup, and did find the Mysti case where you sent me. Yeah! TFS & Big hugs.

I didn't know yesterday was your birthday until I visited Tammy's posts. Happy belated birthday! Hope it was fabulous!

Jessi Fogan said...

I had to laugh at the rash! I think he's super sweet! (Hey, maybe he's part chameleon and trying to blend in with the polka dots?) The ribbon tied to the frame is such a cool touch!

This is super cute Lynne and your piggy rash looks like a really nice texture. That brilliant pink and black combo on the white is great.

Kathy D. said...

Oh my I'm not smiling I'm laughing too hard!! You made my stomach hurt!! :) At first I thought it was an accident and then I see your were trying a technique...I don't color images often so not up with all the techniques. I love that you call it a rash and then stuck him in a polaroid frame. I love love the pink polka dotted paper around the edges...PERFECTION!!
