This Little Piggy | #WWYS

Welcome back to another week with What Will You Stamp? This week the set we are showcasing the adorably cute "This Little Piggy" stamp set

I love colouring, in fact I find it very therapeutic;  I was so tired when I started this card (my daughter had friends visit and a sleepover, needless to say I think I am running on about 3.5 hrs sleep) yet when I finished the colouring I had already decided on the colour scheme and a plan for the background - I was revitalised!



Water colour pencils are a great companion for this set, I used Calypso Coral and Smoky Slate to colour my piggy.  I tip for colouring is to decide the direction of your light source and apply more colour for the shadows, I colour with a light pressure, adding a little colour and building it slowly, less is more, and it is easier to add colour than remove, when I was happy with my colour I blended with an aqua painter

Have you tried any of the 3D Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folders - They are AMAZING! I've used Pinewood Planks for my background, they are a great way to quickly add texture and dimension to your projects, here's a short video about them:
