Hello. Welcome. A special hi and hello to Patti J who has joined my happy following. So lovely to have you along. A extra big hug to you and all my lovely followers. Hugz
It was a very happy mail day today with some of the latest releases from Cheery Lynn dropping into the mail box. I couldn't resist these dies. Luckily I was the challenge winner a few weeks ago so I had a few free dollars. Thanks Cheery Lynn.
Meet Happy Hippo. So cute. The colour scheme is courtesy of the Pinkfresh Studio, who in collaboration with Winnie and Walter, are having a fun celebration of National Scrapbook Day. I used an aqua card base and added some Salty Ocean distress ink smudges. I cut Cheery Lynn Celtic Fire Oval frame and backed it with a piece of harlequin embossed neon pink card. I added some Salty Ocean, but of course pink + blue = purple, so I flipped it over, used white ink then Salty Ocean. A bit darker than I wanted but it's still blue. I cut Cheery Lynn Happy Hippo from aqua and pink card and paper pieced. I added sapphire blue rhinestones for the eyes and some neon pink photo corners.
