Piggy Grad

>> Friday, April 20, 2018

Happy Friday!
I hope your week has gone well! It's getting to be that time of year..time for the Pomp & Circumstance march across the stage. I remember it well...mainly because I was in the band & played it for a lot of graduating classes! In the graduation spirit, I have a fun grad card today.

Normally, this pig image has a party hat along w/ a balloon but since I fussy cut him, I cut off the party hat. The small balloon was stamped again w/ lt blue ink, colored & fussy cut. All the other balloons were made by die cutting 2 sizes of balloons in a piece of copy paper & using the negative as a stencil. After I sponged the Distress inks thru the stencil I added some Wink of Stella to some of them. 
The greeting was stamped at the bottom & I used Copics to make the shadow underneath. A few grad caps & some drawn balloon strings & I was done!

Here's a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend!
