Spring Bud Hippo - Sandra Caldwell new release

Hello and happy Friday everyone!  What a week.  I have been working later at work... this means getting home later... preparing the meal later and obviously after eating well it's time for bed... almost anyway lol.  This means no crafty time for me and I miss it!!!

But because it's Friday it also means that there are new release over at Sandra Caldwell's etsy store.  And you can find this super cute Spring Bud Hippo there.

I made a video of the process of this.

And here is a closer look at my mixed media journaling out of the box.  The sentiment was found online and typed on a word document and then torn out.

I used a bunch of left over papers for this as well as a silicone mat for stamping.  The texture paste is from Heidi Swapp.  I colored the super cute hippo with my copics and then fussy cut her out.  I added a bit of sparkly washi at the bottom so that she is kind of doing a tight rope split lol.

I'm entering this mixed media piece in the following challenges:

  1. Crafting by designs - Anything goes
  2. Crafty sentiments - anything goes
  3. Inspiration destination challenge blog - Anything goes
  4. Crafty gals corner challenges - 3 plus layers - I put a lot of layers on this as you can see on the video :)
  5. Tuesday throwdown - Tropical critters.
That's it for me for today!  Hope you have a great rest of the day and that you will be able to craft :)
