Hello and Happy Monday,
I hope everyone has had a good long weekend and hasn't make themselves sick on chocolate!! I have been very good - no easter eggs for me this year! Anyway today I would like to share a last minute card I made for this weeks Freshly Made Sketches. I love their sketches but haven't had the time to play along for ages!!
When I saw this weeks sketch by Jen T I knew I wanted to make the half circle a body of water but I wasn't sure where to go with it. I was browsing some digital stamp sites and came across this happy hippo and an idea came so I just had to buy him! He is called Diving Hippo and is available from Gerda Steiner Designs. As per usual the card didn't turn out the way I envisioned and I'm not 100% happy with it but it was great fun to make!

I coloured him in with copics and added some glossy accents to his goggles - you can just see it in the close-up below. I also created the water with a stencil and my copics and decided to make a shaker card out of it just for some fun. I hope you like it.
