Hi there and welcome back!
When I ran across this little silver piggy bank for one dollar, I couldn't quite refuse. I figured he'd come in handy for something. Little did I know he'd become a motivational speaker!
I lathered this little hog up in gesso and got to work covering him with sheet music.
Random and various shape stamps (hexagon, dots and splatters) were covered in Versamark, then stamped to his 'hide' and covered in clear embossing powder.
Now that I think of it, it makes him look like he's working up a sweat flying...and reasonably so!
Then Old Paper DI was applied for aging.
After I finished making the bifocals for his face, I realized the uncanny similarity between my bit o' flying bacon and this guy from Banshee.
Here are the stamped wings that I made and then overlaid another sentiment stamp in white.
"Spread your wings and fly"
Perfect sentiment for a pig on the go...
This is one of the TH Custom Fasteners or 'brads' that I used as a button for his bowtie and those are his washi tape covered hooves.
Because that is a lucky number in our home....
Trying out the new remnant rubs that were travel and ticket related
as he's obviously 'in flight'.
And now, I have no excuse to delay anything I was avoiding or putting aside for another day, because...
Oops....I almost forgot. At the last minute I realized his face was still kind of bland so I cut a piece of cardstock and made him some black bangs. LOL!
This will sit in my studio and keep me inspired and motivated.
I hope you like him too.
This little buddy of mine was designed specifically for these three challenges that I would like to enter:
1.) Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge - B is for ( all my B's are highlighted in the post)
2.) The Mirror Crack'd - Wings (no cards allowed)
3.) Mixed Media Monthly Challenge - Birds of a Feather (So inspired by the incredible textures and sentiments)
Thank you so much for your visit.
Big hugs and Happy Crafting to you,
