PigWit Cheer!

Hello! happy Monday to you.
Today has a new I {heart}sketches challenge for From The Heart Stamps :)
Here's the sketch:

The twist this time is 'Watercolouring', so I got out my very limited supply of distress inks for my card...

This fab image is PigWit Cheer.
I used tattered rose, fired brick, and antique linen inks. Unfortunately, I didn't print my image onto watercolour card stock, so the end result isn't what I wanted because the inks didn't blend too good.
I also used the inks on the base card too.
I needed to outline my image again with a thin black marker once it had dried.
The sentiment is one of FOUR that you get for free when you buy this image :)
I chose this particular one, because I can add whatever greeting I need to the inside before I send the card... happy birthday, well done, you're the best...etc
The paper strips are scraps from my stash, and I used a small star punch to add some extra interest.
