Hippo Love

This post is a bit late in the day for me, but I just had to share my new Gina K Designs stamps. This is the hippo from the Just So Hippy set. Ain't she cute! :)

This card is 5x5 Blue Bayou with sponged edges and a flower stamped border. Then I layered on Black with white gel pen faux stitching, then Soft Sky DSP. The final layer is Bayou with the main image stamped on watercolor paper. I have to say, I really like my coloring better on this paper. Much easier to blend than on regular cardstock. I added photo corners, ribbon and a flower slide, and the circle sentiment as the final accents. The Rose Red felt flower was for a splash of color. The main image is water colored with an aquapainter and re-inkers. For the grass, I used a black marker and hand drew the blades and then water colored the green area.

Thanks for looking, hope you all had a great Thursday. Happy Stamping! :)
