Have a Super-potamus Day!

Have a Super-potamus Day!

Greetings everyone! It's me again, Jessie Scott (@chevy.scott on IG), Guest Designing for Gerda Steiner Designs!
 
Today I have another fun collaboration with Pear Blossom Press products to share. I had this crazy idea that this super hippo (one of the several mix and matches you can make with this cute Hippo in Disguise set) could be standing on a wall, overlooking his city ( from Skyline set)

  For this design I used my OLO Markers to color a few Hippos. I always worry I'll mess up :-D but watch for the IG and Facebook posts coming soon to show what I did with these extras!). Which super hero hippo coloring is your favorite?  
 
   
Now...... what to do... what to do! haha! I played with a couple layered Skyline options and even had the brick wall stamp from the Skyline set as well.  Once I figured out where my Hippo signal spotlight should go, I used a 1" circle punch and colored some vellum with yellow marker. I used a small "H" die cut to create the signal in the sky.
I ink blended a cloud stencil with white Distress Ink black paper to create a cloudy night scene for the Hippo signal. To get the beam, I masked off a triangle and inked on Mustard Seed Distress Oxide. 
I decided to trim off the back layer of Skyline so there is a tall building in the right to have the spotlight coming from. I colored them all with the same OLO colors. I decided to have the brick wall replaced with a sentiment strip across the bottom of the card.


Here's the finished project!

Did we forget already that this card LIGHTS UP? haha

See you again soon!

Lynn S – This is a custom sentiment I made in MS Word and printed out. There are so many free fonts out there. I love that you can make whatever your card needs!

Debbie – thank you so much! Can’t wait to see what you light up!
