Pig Valentine - FTH

From the Heart Progressive  Challenge is up and running and this is the free image if you had participated in their last challenge (June 2016).  So great to have Faith back and creating more of her wonderful images.

Card Details
image: Hogs and Kisses PigWit  by FTH Stamps
Sentiment: from the above stamp set
Paper: Stampin Up
Colour medium : Copics
INK: Stampin Up Really Rust
Die: La La Land Heart Banner; Spellbinders Grommet Tags
Embossing Folder: Stampin Up 'Decorative Dots'.
Other: rusty brown  brads

I die cut three tags  two brown and one white. I used the two brown tags as the border for the white sentiment. The nose and bow tie  were made dimensional  by printing the image twice, colouring the nose and bow tie on the spare image , cutting them out and using pop ups placed them over the first image.
