Porridge the pig

My wonderful friend, Sheila, sent me this great stamp, his name is Porridge and he is from Sugar Nellie stamps. I just love him.

I began by stamping him on Cryogen paper and coloring the image with my Copics. Sorry, I had to move onto another project and put my markers from this away so I am not sure what colors I used. But today I got back to poor Porridge and die cut him out with my Nestabilities Label Two die. Before removing him from the die, I masked a horizon and airbrushed B34 in the sky and E53 on the ground. I used my Copic Multiliner to add some grass on the horizon line. Then I added some squiggles in the dirt around the pig.

The DP is from the Oh! Baby Girl collection from Basic Grey. I airbrushed the blue flower and the rhinestones to match. Finished size is 5 3/8" square.
