I could have just stamped three piggies, but a party of five seemed much better! I stamped the center, left, and right first, masked them with Eclipse tape masks, then stamped the other two, being careful their faces werent hidden.
I used Albrecht Durer Watercolor Pencils – I chose a warm pink (dark flesh) and a cool shadow pink (madder), and a grey and reddish brown for the barn. To make sure the hats and scarves pop, I chose colors that were very different – blue and green.
