Sending Hogs & Kisses

Happy Friday!
I hope your first week of 2016 has gone well! We've finally had a little taste of winter this week. It sure took it's sweet time! Speaking of sweet time, it's now time to get busy on Valentine cards...it will be here before you know it. So I'm sending some hogs & kisses, lol. Don't you just love this adorable Cupig? Pigs DO fly, apparently. After I stamped him & the hearts, I colored with Copics then over stamped w/ Versafine. It may be hard to tell, but this is all just one layer. I die cut the main part 3 times w/ gradually smaller rectangles (doing a little out of the box along the way). On the two outside frames left, I colored them w/ some of the same Copics, then put it all back together. You're probably asking "Why?" I dunno...I guess because I could, lol. And I didn't have enough of the right red or pink to go with this. So by using the same Copics, I know it will match. I added some little die cut hearts & arrows & the fussy cut red heart on top. The Hogs & Kisses part was die cut w/ a pennant & added to a large arrow.
And here's the inside & below are the Copics I used.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend! 
Supplies:
paper: X-Press It white, small scraps of red & black
ink: Memento tuxedo black, Versafine onyx
accessories: Copic markers, Misti, Spellbinders A2 matting basics A & B, pierced rectangles, arrows & hearts dies
