Hambo's Pig Sub

Greetings Earthlings-

I got a really fun free digi from Hambo this week! Why free? Because I entered their challenge LAST week.  YOU enter this week and you'll get a free image next week! See the pattern here?

This week's challenge is AWESOME! They are going to collect cards for my favorite folks at Operation Write Home!!

Here's what the fine folks at Hambo sent this week..

OK, I'm not sure why he/she has goggles on but maybe he/she is about to go diving?  I find it's best not to analyse a pig in a sub anyway..

I decided to paper piece this. I printed the image in reverse on the back side of my DP. I knew the print would not show up on the front.

I used my Copics to color in the details of the image. Then I went over the red with a red Spica pen. Not a lot of markers used this week!

If I had this to do again, I would use much darker colors on the ham. Since I added Glossy Accents to the window it looks washed out.  I also used a Viva Pearl Pen opaque to add the lines to the sub.

Here's the window detail:

Ohhh! Shiny!!

The background DP is really old but I have recently seen it for sale at my local Joann's. I also used a MS punch on the top edge. It had 3 rows of scallops but I trimmed the top row off because it was too wide. I added a silver heart to the sentiment and 3 clear dots to the bottom left corner to finish it off.

That's it for today. Be sure to come back OCTOBER FIRST for the World Card Making Day OWH blog hop!

Party on, Wayne.
