Hippo Bird-Day to You

Happy Tuesday! I had a busy weekend with the twins that extended into Monday. Rarely a dull moment around here. We did finally get a bit of rain but we really need more. Most of the rain tracked north of us. But at least the humidity and temperature has come down for the start of this week. I played with some new stuff that I recently got today and thought I'd try something a bit different.

I used my watercolors to create a background. You probably will notice that I need some practice with my watercolor technique. The die cut "you" is from MFT You Trio. The white heat embossed sentiment is from the new MFT All About You stamp set (I love the sentiments in this set!). The images and the black heat embossed sentiment is from the new MFT Happy Hippos stamp set and die cut with the matching dies. I popped up the hippo and the bird. The background is flecked with Stampin Up Iridescent Ice so it has a nice glittery shine to it. The purple piece at the top was die cut with MFT Stitched Basic Edges and accented with white gel pen as are the balloons.
I am entering these challenges:

I am off to get dinner ready. Hope your week is off to a great start. It'll be  a busy week for me. Take Care!

I think your background is lovely - one advantage of techniques like that is that you can achieve so many different looks - nearly always very pretty! Cute image and sentiment, too. Thanks for joining us at the QKR Stampede - Anything Goes challenge (option - up, up and away) this week. Dorothy S, DT member

That stamp is just adorable. I find that watercolors are a difficult medium to work with unless you use them regularly....hence I don't. People are great that use them all the time.....some of us just don't have that much time,hehe.

Cute card! I think your watercolor background looks great and the little hippo is so cute. You are so lucky to be able to spend so much time with the twins! We have some rain here but not enough.
