I’m back again today sharing a few more hippo Halloween cards. These are simple one layer cards that work up pretty fast if you’re looking to make a quick card to give before Sunday.
I’ve used my favorite little hippos from Clearly Besotted on these.
Just like my card yesterday, I stamped the hippo with Cement Gray ink from MFT for no line coloring with Copics and masked the image. I also punched a circle from eclipse tape and adhered it to the panel for the moon.
This time, I used a watercolor wash stencil from MFT and placed a post-it note along the bottom to cover the ground area. I inked the rest with Tumbled Glass, Broken China, Chipped Sapphire, Dusty Concord and Black Soot distress inks.
I removed the post-it note and inked the ground with Pumice Stone distress ink.
For the tree, I used a spooky tree die from the MFT Haunted House dies and die-cut it from blank stencil material.( You could also try die-cutting from acetate). Leaving the watercolor wash stencil in place, I laid my tree stencil over the top and inked it with Black Soot distress ink.
To finish, I heat embossed the sentiment with super fine white embossing powder.
This card was the first one I made using the same techniques above, but I realized I forgot to stamp the little pumpkin basket. So, he’s just a cute little Count Dracula hippo out to scare.
Hope you enjoyed my super scary hippos!
See you again soon!
