Hippo mail!

Update: This card received the "Honorable Gnome" title!! I'm so so happy! thanks!! :)

Hi guys! 
I'll continue to say that I already miss the beach, the sun and the sea.. until my next vacation..! Yeah.. i'll probably do! :)
This summer there was a lovely mascotte at my hotel, a super cute and sweet hippo with his funny "granny panties"! Let me say it was super super cute! :) Both childrens and their parents were crazy about! So I decided to celebrate our hippo mascotte with a card! Here's what i created...

The challenge at Lawnscaping is "texture" so i decided to add some interest to my card with some distress inks shading and some dimension! I love all my distress inks.. For this card I used "Tumbled Glass", "Salty Ocean" and "Mermaid Lagoon".
Here you can see how I built my ocean waves scene...!

I curled all the waves to give lots of texture and dimension and I love all these little happy mails hiding in the ocean..! And I used some foam tape for my hippo to make it really stand out! 
I modified the Lawn Fawn original hippo stamp drawing some giant pants and i colored it with my copics and for the sentiment I combined two LF stamp set: "Year Four" and "Gleeful Garden".



I hope you like it and thank you sososooo much for stopping by today! :)
