Today is a “New Release” day at Catch the BugPig Birthday Cupcake is today’s image.. I decided to create a masculine card (or try) – meaning darker colors. I found a gel place background in my stash and used it to inspire the rest. 

I used my A Jillian Vance Design Dies and Spellbinders Rectangles for the layers. With my Copics and some color pencils (for final touches) I tried for some shading on the pig’s face then yellow highlight – from the candle. I don’t know how I feel about it but it was a fun exercise either way 🙂

I hope you are inspired to practice your shading.

I’d like to enter this in the following challenges:

Thanks for Stopping by!
