Big Thanks

Hi Everyone,

a quick post today with a CAS card or better two, although they were not quite as simple as they look....

I started out masking off a strip on the card and sponging in pink. Added the hippo in navy blue, but to my dismay it looks almost black. Added the sentiment in grey.

Then I thought I give it another go with a lighter blue ink - same steps, except that this ink alos does not look navy. I did shift the hippo up a bit, so that I could fir two complete sentiments below it, but then I was unhappy with how it looked and added another sentiment on top.

I actually like both versions, although the first one a tad better.

My stamp supplies are: 
sentiment: CASual Fridays
hippo: Rubber Soul (ancient wood stamp)

Linking up with:

CASual Fridays - pink, navy, white
Muse - see Kay Millers fabulous card below 
(grey background stamping and colorful focal point)
CASE this Sketch - see below
Double D challenges - silhouetttes

Happy Stamping!

Mir gefällt die Karte mit dem blauen Hippe besser, sie sieht nicht so "traurig" aus, wobei traurig nicht richtig ist. ich mag halt knallige Farben!!!
Liebe Grüße
