Hogs and Kisses!

Good morning!  We have a fun new sketch for you at From the Heart Stamps, along with a new "twist" to "spotlight or 3D parts of the image".  Here's the sketch:

I went with the "twist" only this week.  I had already printed Pumpkin PigWit twice, with the intent of paper piecing, and wanted to use the fall image since I will soon be moving on to Christmas images.  The image is colored with pencils and Pigwit's eyes are dotted with a gel pen.  I've cut out (and popped up) his "hat", snout, the center portions of the pumpkins, and some of the leaves.  I pulled some fall patterned paper from my stash and decided to pick up the blue dot in the background...even though I have colored nothing in the image blue...theory being that blue and orange are complementary colors.  I wasn't sure how it would look, but I like it!  I've added a bit of ribbon and a diecut heart with an extra sentiment.  This is a really fun technique to do and it does add a lot of interest to the image...give it a try!

Here's a close-up of the 3D detail:

Image/Sentiment: FTHS Pumpkin PigWit Digital Image
Sentiment (XOXOXO): FTHS Blowing Kisses Digital Image
Ink: Printer, Signo Gel Pen
Paper: G.P. 110, SU! Marina Mist, PTI Dark Chocolate, KI Memories Patterned Paper
Embellie: SU! Chocolate Chip Grosgrain Ribbon
Extras: Prismas/Crayolas/Goo Gone, Spellbinders Nestabilities, Foam Tape
