Cartoon Happy Hippo Holding A Sign (Ken Benner) - Stitchy Bear's/Incy Wincy

Good evening lovelies!

We have another fab challenge for you over at Incy Wincy, this week it's 'Exotic Animals' and our lovely sponsor is Stitchy Bear's Digi Outlet.

There are some brilliant designers on the Stitchy Bear site and I chose 'Cartoon Happy Hippo Holding a Sign' by Ken Benner.

I've made the hippo purple - don't ask me why, I just he'd look good purple! :o) and I added a sentiment to the sign.

Here is the cheeky chappy...

Illustration by Ken Benner - coloured by me!
What you need...

Card stock: white
Promarkers: Aubergine, Fuchsia Pink, Ice Grey 1, Peony, Purple

What you do...

Re-size the image, add a sentiment to the sign, print onto white card and colour in.
Mat onto a top fold A6 blank so the hippo is at the bottom.

That's it! Done! I think this makes quite a good 'manly' card, as you know they can be notoriously difficult to make for.

I'll sign off for now, but I'll be back soon, thank you for popping in - ttfn! x
