You're The Hippest!

Hello there! I have a mini card for you today using the Miss Ink Floral Wave Offset stencil, Waves stencil and the Hippo Hooray stamp set. I have several techniques that I did for this card, heat embossing onto acetate and embossing with a stencil; I hope that you will give them a try!

First I took a piece of 110lb Neenah solar white cardstock and taped the Floral Wave Offset stencil to it, ran it through my die cut machine so that it made an impression on the paper. I then ink blended very lightly over the impressed part with distress oxide in scattered straw and tattered rose. I then die cut it down to a smaller size.

Next I used the Waves stencil to heat emboss 2 colors of embossing powder (WOW embossing powders in Oceanic and Bee Kind) onto 2 different pieces of heavy acetate (Lawn Fawn Acetate). This acetate does not warp under the heat of a heat gun! I then fussy cut the parts of the wave that I wanted to use and placed them over vellum and blue cardstock (I looked in my stash to try to create the color I wanted).

Finally, I die cut a sentiment and image from the Hippo Hooray stamp set. I colored the hippo simply with C3 and C0 copic markers and sandwiched him between the 2 pieces of acetate.  Thank you so much for stopping by- I hope that you will give both of the techniques a try!
