A Little Birdie Told Me...

...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:
