Huge Hugs - Miss Ink Stamps

Welcome back!  Today I'm sharing a card using another new release stamp set from Miss Ink, Hippo Hooray!  I just love these adorable hippos in this set along with all of the other great images... I've used almost all of them today!
I used distress oxide for the background in a few blues... I just blended it on with a blending brush and then used the Paint Stroke Floral stencil and added a little more.. just lightly which created a nice ripply effect over the blue.. you know... like water!

I heat embossed some of the little solid fishies in gold and some of the bubbles in white.
I stamped, colored and cut all of my images including the banner from Springtime banners... I just LOVE coloring those banners in.  I stamped my sentiment onto the banner and then popped it up and arranged all of my images around it.  Finally just a few sequins and done!

I'm playing along with Double Trouble's current challenge to use dry or heat embossing!  I've done that!  And with these awesome hippos I've also met the critter twist and am linking up with this challenge's partner, 2 Crafty Critter Crazies!  You should check them out!  There are prizes!

Thanks so much for stopping by and hope you enjoyed it!  Come again soon!
