This was one of the first hippo cards I made with Just So Hippy (I only realized the other day I'd never posted it when Donna was going through my basket!!) I was trying to be proactive and make a mask for all my images right away when my set arrived, so instead of coloring this one I figured I'd put my mask to work by covering my stamped image on the vanilla CS with the mask and sponging chocolate ink over it. How's that for quick coloring AND a background??
This Au Chocolat DP pack is one of my favorites SU! has ever offered, and to customize/spice it up a little/add some color I stamped my hippy flowers where the circles intersected on the print, and colored them in to match the hippos (Groovy Guava). I hadn't received my circle Nestabilites at that point so I had to use the Coluzzle and some scalloped scissors to create my mats...I love making the hippo look even rounder than usual! And both work really well with the circle design in the pattern.
The weekend is almost over :( Too short!! Hope you had a good one! Check back later for a hair-raising card!! (hee-hee...!!)
