CASology: Jungle

Hello! It's that time of the week - time for a new cue from the CASology challenge!

Oh goodness! I have so many stamps in my collection that could work for this cue! I decided to use one that hasn't seen any love yet. I'm sure you've got a few in your stash like this. I bought it because it was absolutely adorable and then it just sat there unused as I created other projects. Time to show it some love!

I began by stamping the hippo, bird, and sentiment using my MISTI. So thankful for that tool! It makes everything so much easier! Then I lined up my balloons so the hippo would be holding them and used my MISTI to stamp them, too!

I cut out my panel after everything was stamped (which is backwards from what I usually do!). Then I used my Copics to color everything in. I used warm grays for my hippo and then used my cool grays to add a halo around the images so they don't look so flat against the white panel.

I finished it all off by adhering it to a gray card base using my tape runner.

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you'll join us with your own creations!
