"Just So Hippy" Dress

Well here is my second entry for the "Just So Hippy" blog contest. I love this stamp set. It is just so cute. It is from Gina K. I stamped our little hippo twice, once on white cardstock and once on patterned paper. I cut out only the body part on the patterned paper to resemble a dress. I attached the dress to the white hippo. I then colored her in with my colored pencils and Turpenoid. I then matted her on two different size Scallop Ovals cut with my Nestabilities in my Wizard die cut tool. I mounted the hippo to the yellow scallop oval and then mounted that to the larger pink scallop oval. I added some white dots to the pink oval with a white gel pen. Next I attached the oval to the card on the upper left side. I then added a strip of matching patterned paper across the bottom of the card. I glued a piece of velvet yellow rickrack over the seam. Lastly, I printed the saying on my Word program in brown and cut into strips. I mounted the strips to matching yellow cardstock. I attached the word strips at various angles to the right side of the card. And, voila, you have it! I "hippy" little card. Enjoy!
