I thought it was high time that my MFT Happy Hippos stamp set had another outing.
It’s so easy to tempted by new stamp sets…I do it ALL THE TIME but most of us already of lots of treasures in our stamp stash.

Just the addition of a new ink colour or cute card is enough to get my creative juices flowing again.
Thanks to Tim Holtz distress Oxide in Kitsch Flamingo haa definitely done that for me!
Discovering a cool effect.
The background was created by blending Kitsch Flamingo onto white card. I spritzed it and dried it with a heat tool.
Then the magic happened!
After stamping my Hippos and balloons I coloured them in and I love how the pink from the KF mixed with the grey of my TriBlend Brush Marker. It created such a cool greyish/pinkish effect! Don’t you just love ink?
Below are all the colours I used on this card.
Colour the balloons in and add a little glossy accents to the left edges.
Stamp and colour the birds in and fussy cut out, then add to the project with 3D foam pads.
