What a heart-rending story behind the destination for the MMTPT Cupcakes, a Tutu and a Hippo or Two tea-party this week.
This is also for Judy's Real Sewing TLC challenge. Apart from the stitching you can still see on the card, you don't want to know how many stitches didn't make it on in my three failed attempts to add a little pink tutu to my baby hippo. When they all failed, I had to settle for sparkly toenails and bow.
A2 Bazzill base. SU papers cut and stitched. I added little heart brads in each corner.
Pun Fun hippo stamped on white card and coloured with Polychromos pencils. Outside masked, and I sponged in some grass. Centre masked and I sponged the outside pink, and then popped up on foam. I added some pink felt roses to dress it up a bit, and used a balloon brad over the stamped one which is part of the image.

Sabrina, I love everything about this! Your sewing is perfect, I'm jealous, you may remember a couple of years back I attempted sewing on a card and lifted the pressure foot and put a stitch in my fingernail. I couldn't practise the piano for close to a month. The painted toenails...pure genius. I also love all the hearts.

Oh my goodness Sabrina this is so adorable. Your stitching is incredible and makes a perfect showcase for your wonderful hippo. I love her toenails and bow. The layout is gorgeous....everything is gorgeous. Thank you for the detailed masking description, I learn something new every time I read your descriptions. TFS

Oh my Sabrina, but this is cute. I love all that stitching on your card too. Can't imagine Jasmine not smiling at this one.
