Hogs & Kisses

The Sophie Pig stamp set by Beth Silaika has long been a favourite of mine but I haven’t used it in a while. Making some cards for my friends who have grandchildren made me bring it out although any adult would probably enjoy this card too.

After stamping Sophie first I masked her off using liquid masking fluid. I’ve had it for ages and forgotten about it so this is the first time using it. It is so easy and far less time consuming than cutting a mask. Comes off by using an artist eraser. I then stamped the water and the umbrella. Once the mask was removed I coloured in the images using my pencils and gamsol. I added 3 colours of blue to make the look of water but did not use any gamsol as I wanted a rougher look. Once coloured I added some nuvo crystal glace to Sophie’s ears, feet, nose and water. Added the hearts and the sentiment and then mounted onto a red piece and then onto card front. Don’t know why I haven’t done more of these CAS cards as they are quick and easy to do. I’m now on a CAS kick.

  1. I’m finding doing these CAS cards is quick and much easier than some of the more elaborate cards I do. I’m having a lot of fun right now. Probably this coming week there won’t be much time so I’m doing as many as I can now.


  2. Thanks Gayle. Got your note – glad you have finished with work now. Will be in touch again soon. hugs J
