Hip-Hippo-Ray Card

Here is a card I did with my Thurs AM Club ladies. The inspiration for this card came from the Berry Bliss DSP Color Combo....Chocolate Chip, Close to Cocoa, Pretty in Pink, and Rose Red.


The hippo image is colored in with a Going Grey marker and a blender pen. The bow and balloon are both colored in with Rose Red....looks like it's actually two different colors, huh. That's because the bow was covered with Dazzling Diamonds glitter using the glue pen, and the balloon has Crystal Effects over it.

I used Versamark ink for the Sweet Stars Jumbo Wheel. If you don't know how to do that, I explained how in this post. I highlighted a few of the stars by using the glue pen and then covering it with Dazzling Diamonds glitter. When using the Glue Pen, you want to make sure to be quick...you want the glue to be blue when you adhere your embellishment, not clear. If it does turn clear before you are ready, just add more fresh glue.

The Light Pink Gingham ribbon is wrapped around the just the front of the card. I did that by punching the Rectangle Handheld Punch in the card seam about 1" from the bottom....the ribbon was just fed through the punched hole and tied in front.

Stamp Sets: Pun Fun, Sweet Stars Jumbo Wheel
Card Stock: Chocolate Chip, Pretty in Pink, Close to Cocoa, Rose Red, Whisper White
Inks: Black Stazon, Going Grey marker, Rose Red marker, Versamark ink Jumbo Cartridge
Accessories: Blender Pen, Glue Pen, Dazzling Diamonds glitter, Jumbo Wheel Handle, Wheel Guide, Crystal Effects, Rectangle Punch, Light Pink Gingham ribbon, Dimentionals
I stink you're sweet! Skunk (...one of the Pun Fun sayings...)

It was a fun card to make. I'm better blending with baby oil and since you showed me that way of blending I often use it. Thanks again for sharing! Wow you are really good at giving us so many new and old ideas. :-)
