Hippo



 
This silly and fun image is named Hippo and available at Whimsy Stamps and it makes me smile whenever I see it.  It was a card I did as one of Whimsy Stamps Magazine Designers and it was published in the printed version of the July issue #9 of Whimsy Stamps Inspiration Magazine
The sentiment is computer generated onto Kraft paper and cut out.  The papers are from First Edition’s Up Up & Away 6" x 6" paper pad.  The brads are Basic Grey, the image was coloured with Copic Markers (C7, C5, C3, C1 ) and the little bit of ribbon is from Stampin Up.
Challenges:
Basic Grey - Anything Goes
Bearly Mine - Anything Goes
Papertake Weekly - Pins & Needles
Stamp & Create - Stitch it Up
Crafty Catz - Ribbons & Bows
Tuesday Throwdown - Hip to be Square
