Hi! This card was made for today's Sketch Challenge!
I was working at the elections yesterday, and when I got home, my stampin' room looked like a tornado hit it.... Speedy the Cat and the SSS (Semi Siamese Siblings) decided to just go crazy!!! There were primas scattered EVERYWHERE! I found about 10 yards of slightly chewed ribbon just piled onto my chair. Hmmmmm.... Maybe Speedy the Cat wants me to use so of this ribbon??? LOL!
I decided to feature this great hippo from the upcoming Sweet N' Sassy Stamps release! WOW! She's a DREAM to color!
I stamped the image 3 times and colored each image. I used markers and reinkers to get the deep color and shading. I used an Inkssentials pen to highlight her ear, eyes, nostrils, and toenails. I cut out the images and layered the head and nose.
I wanted to add primas, but do not own any black ones...So, I punched black circles and layered them underneath! The centers of the flowers are new brad hardware from Stampin' Up!
