Aren't these hippos so cute. They're from the stamp set Hippest Hippos (one of our saleabration options free with a $90 order.) I've used my Stampin' Blends to colour them in and teamed them with the Picture This Dies. I've also used a few scraps of the Rings Of Love DSP (another of our Saleabration free products.)
Here's a few step by step pics.
First - stamp with memento black ink.
Choose some Stampin' Blends to add some colour. I've used gray granite, smoky slate, crumb cake and a touch of poppy parade.
I'm definitely not an expert colouring person - I usually start with the light colour, then add some of the darker shade, then go back with the lighter shade to blend.
When I finished colouring I roughly cut around each hippo and adhered them to the back of the circles with tape. (Crumb Cake cardstock and Picture This Dies.) I also added some scraps of patterned paper.
Stick down on a white card base and all done.
Keen for some patterned paper and coordinating cardstock in a handy little pack - check out my handy kits page here.
