Hippo Hooray!

It's challenge day with the fabulous ladies at i {heart} papers!  This month everyone is sharing a project with a 12x12 collection kit and one of the newest products available in the store, Spectrum Noir alcohol markers.

Before I go any further, here's my disclaimer: I goofed and forgot to use my 12x12 collection kit....I used this scrumptious Echo Park Tailored (For the Record 2) 6x6 paper.  I've been out of town and came home to very sick kids (yuck - pink eye and strep!) so I'm not really firing on all cylinders!

I did manage to ink up my darling hippo (from the Paper Smooches Zoo Crew set) with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, stamped her onto Ultra Smooth White card stock, and colored her with my Spectrum Noir markers:

Hippo: BG1, BG2, BG4
Tongue: CR3. BG1
Toenails: CR10

I used dimensional dots to place her on top of a scallop tag die.  To finish off my card I added two different Hemptique twines - Natural and White.  If you don't have any of this yet, you are totally missing out!  It's gorgeous, seriously!

Be sure to stop by and see what all the cool kids (you know, the ones who can follow directions and make the right kind of challenge project!) made:
