Miss Ink Stamps – Hippopotamiss You

Hey there again! I’m hanging out on the Miss Ink Stamps blog today with a fun slimline mini scene card. Sometimes coloring in whole card front scenes can be daunting and overwhelming so I decided to try something different and just to a mini scene. I love it and I’m totally hooked! Plus, you know I love these hippos more than words!

For today’s card I stamped my hippo and bird from Hippo Hooray and then also stamped masks for them. After cutting and placing the masks I stamped one of the Scene Builder: Meadow images over the top. I removed the masks and colored everything with my copic markers. I die cut the panel with a stitched slimline rectangle and then cut a second one just a smidge bigger out of yellow.

The yellow one is adhered to a card base with liquid glue and my scene panel is popped up with foam tape. I stamped and heat embossed a sentiment from Hippo Hooray on black cardstock with white embossing powder. I trimmed it down into a strip and popped it up with foam squares.

Moving on to finishing touches, I added black glaze pen to the critter eyes and, once it was dry added a white gel pen accent back in. Then I added unicorn Stickles to the flowers in the grass for a little shimmer. The last thing I did was add glossy accents to the bird’s beak and hippos teeth and toes for a little shine.

I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!
