I went rogue on my friend Lori's Falliday Fest challenge because I had this adorable stamp sitting on my desk that I could not resist using.

Her challenge is to use a bird or feathers on your card.

Technically I did use feathers, because I'm pretty sure a small flying pig/bug/man creature's wings have feathers on them, but of course I can't be 100% certain, because I can't find one in the wild in order to study it.

These wonderful whimsical Zinis stamps jumped into my cart when I was buying the new colors of Paper Artsy Infusions.

I think the flying pigbugman actually flitted around my studio this weekend, because I can no longer find the Post-It® note that I wrote my Copic colors on for this card, so I am sorry - I don't have them. But it's pink, orange, yellow and green :).

To put this together, it actually took a few steps. I colored him first on marker paper. Then I cut him out - just his body and the little ends of his antennae. But he had all this scratchy detail I didn't want to lose around the edges and I definitely didn't want to fussy cut those antennae. So I cut the white panel with the Stitched Circles dies. I also cut a circle of the black & white paper from Merry Little Christmas. I glued the circle into the opening, making it a little tilted so his antennae would show up on those white squares. Then I put that into my MISTI and stamped him on the panel - hanging off each edge of the circle a bit. Then I glued down the paper pieced colored images on top of the stamp image. The sentiment is from Prairie Cheer from Power Poppy. I love that sentiment - it's so true. People spend too much time on themselves these days. Send a flying pigbugman to someone - I promise it will make them smile!
