Up, Up and Away

The challenge today at The Three Muses is 'Up, Up, and Away'. I pulled this page that I did for a book swap quite some time ago. It's a fun piece celebrating National Pig Day...who knew? The clouds didn't scan well but they were made using a stencil. The stamp is unmounted; I can't recall the company name and the banner is carved from an eraser. Alphabet stamps are from MaVinci. Check out the other artist's entries at The Three Muses.

It also lists July 17 as 'yellow' pig day. I don't believe I've ever seen a yellow pig.
