Whimsy Stamps Mini Release - Hippo Beach Fun

Happy First of May! Whimsy Stamps is having another super cute mini release today. Have you been to the store already? I'll be showcasing one of the adorable Hippos from the Hippo Beach Fun clear stamp set by Dustin Pike.

I started out by stamping the image onto Strathmore Bristol Smooth paper with Versafine Onyx black ink. Then I watercolored the image with ZIG clean color brush markers and cut it out. My cardbase is a A2 size cut from white 110lb cardstock. Base layer is blue shimmering cardstock.

To create the wavy background I used Distress Oxide inks (peacock feathers, salty ocean and tumbled glass), the Making Waves stencil and a blending brush on white cardstock. To finish off my card I've added a Connected Rectangle Frame cut out from white cardstock, a sentiment (from the set) and a few sequins.

Here is a link list of all Whimsy products used on my cards:
