Hippo Birdie to You

I am back with another card to share with you using one of the new 2x3 mini stamp sets from the Craftin Desert Divas July Release.  I used the "Hippo Birdie" stamp set along with the coordinating (free) SVG files for my main images and sentiment.

To create my card I did a watercolor background using some watercolor paints I purchased at Michaels.  I used the Tim Holtz watercolor paper.  I cut out my grass using the CDD "Outdoor Landscape" dies.  The sun and clouds are from the "Sky is the Limit" stamp set and coordinating die set.  The flower sequins can be purchased in the CDD store HERE.  I added a drop of liquid pearls (green) to the middle of each flower.  I used the primary Spectrum Noir colored pencil set to color in the hippo and bird along with their hats.  The hat on the bird came from the CDD "sweet wishes" stamp set ( I cut it out with the free SVG).

Today is the second day of the Craftin Desert Divas July Stamp Release blog hop - head HERE to begin the hop from the beginning.  There is lots of great inspiration from the design team and a chance to win some free goodies too :-)
