Happy Hippos Yay


I have a cute birthday card to share today.

As soon as I saw the current MFT colour challenge I just knew I wanted to give it a try with one of my favourite MFT stamp sets,  Happy Hippos.

This trio is adorable and I think almost everyone would love a card featuring them.

I coloured everything with Copics and fussy cut them out.

I adhered them to a scalloped circle die cut and stamped the sentiment which is from the MFT set Birthday Chicks.  I really love this sentiment and it worked out perfectly for this card.

I decided to make it a slimline card and I created the background by using Distress Oxide Inks through a Tim Holtz Gradient Circle stencil.  I was lucky enough to be given this stencil as a Christmas present and it's the first time I've used it.  I LOVE how it turned out!!!  I used Twisted Citron all over the stencil first and then put some Cracked Pistachio over the top of some of those circles also to create a totally new colour (similar to what was needed for the colour challenge).

Copics used :

W 00, 1, 3, 5

Y 000, 13, 15

R 30

BV 000, 00, 02, 04
