...that Meljens was having a sketch challenge! Well, I just had to play along. Here's the sketch, created by Dianna:
and here is my entry!
Isn't this hippo just as cute as a button?!? It was colored using colored pencils and Gamasol. My first time, actually, and I'm pretty happy with the result. I just might have to go out and get some Gamasol of my very own...if any stores around here finally get it in stock! LOL I know it's a bit hard to read because of the coloring, but the sentiment says "a little birdie told me." I thought that was the perfect sentiment for this stamp. Unfortunately, I was at a crop and was unable to find a stamp with the sentiment, so I ended up having to buy a piece of paper that has a bunch of different images and sentiments and just cutting it out. The music notes were drawn with a souffle pen.
I am entering this card in the following challenges:
