Paper Smooches Zoo Crew Hippo


Have you been over to Operation Write Home Stars & Stamps to see their sketch challenge for this week yet?!  The sketch was posted Sunday morning and I have it ready to go Monday morning, that's fast for me!

I've been trying to use digital images and stamped images I've already colored to use up my supply.  
This cute Hippo by Paper Smooches is one of those -  I've colored it with Copic markers in the Warm Gray family and also used Red Violets but I can't tell you which ones because I apparently didn't write it down.  

I tried to match my papers to the Hippo using Stampin' Up! Pretty In Pink & Orchid Opulence, Astrobrights Eclipse Black, X Press It blending card and I'm not sure of the Warm Gray colored paper as it was a scrap.  I chose to make the hearts Orchid Opulence because I got out my old Stampin' Up! color wheel and found it's an analogous or coordinating color to the Pretty In Pink.  I'm still thinking about what I've learned in Operation Write Home Design Boot Camp (=

Thanks for visiting my blog today -

I shudder to think how much nail polish it would take to paint the nails of a hippo. :) I suppose you would have to buy it in gallons? What a great card, I love that cute little image!!! Great sketch card!
