This Week's Colour Challenge

This week's colour challenge was Lovely Lilac, Pretty in Pink and Certainly Celery. (Apparently Lovely Lilac has never been selected for a colour challenge....ever....and a number of people on Splitcoast were feeling sorry for it - LOL)

I knew right away that I wanted a pink hippo....not sure why. I ended up stamping her on watercolour paper and using my markers and aqua-painter to colour her in.

Allison asked what the "h" was for.....Hip-Hippo-Ray!! - of course.

I've noticed that a couple of bloggers have glitzed up their nails with our coloured glitter....so I decided Ms. Hippo needed a bit of bling on her toes too.

I had really, really, really wanted to do the sketch challenge today 'cause I thought it would be cool. However, I'm going to have to wait until tomorrow because I got working on a different card that didn't work with the challenge.....so, until tomorrow....

Happy Stampin' - Joan
