Hi Cutie!

August 29, 2017

Hi there,

it's Tanja here and I would like to show you this colorful project using the Gerda Steiner Designs signature Hippo:

  • stamp the Gerda Steiner Designs Hippo with Butterfly with Versafine Onyx Black onto some Stonehenge paper
  • color the image with Prismacolor Pencils and Zest-it
  • add highlights to the eyes and the little heart on his shirt with a white gel pen
  • stamp the Carta Bella Petite Dots with Versamark onto a piece of turquoise cardstock for a tone-on-tone look
  • mount all the layers onto a white cardbase
  • stamp the sentiment from the Mama Elephant Labeled Messages set with Versafine Onyx Black and use foam tape to adhere the sentiment strip in the top right corner

Thanks for stopping by.

Yours,
