A pig who can fly

There's a new challenge over at Catch the Bug, and this being the first Saturday of the month it's ANYTHING GOES.


For my DT card I chose to play with Superman pig who was colored up some time ago, using my Promarkers.

Being a DP addict I'm no good at using my inks and stencils, but here I used 3 to make my background, no DP in sight!
I added a die cut building using a MB die and stamped a sentiment with a Prima stamp.
I felt the background lacked something, so I used my sewing machine to frame the scene. I stitched two lines of straight stitching and zigzag in the middle.

I'd like to try my luck in these challenges with my card:
Inkspirational - Geometric
Tuesday Throwdown - #283 - Frame It (Stitched frame)
The Outlawz Festive Friday challenge - Choose from 4 themes (National Pig day)
Through the Purple Haze - #96 Make A Scene
Cardz 4 Guyz - make your own background

Great work with this one Pia. I love how you coloured him. I have to try him without a suit too. He looks awesome! Do you remember what colours you used for your pig skin?
