Hippo Sunday - PaperWorksCo Sunday Sketch #49

Hi everyone!

Welcome to my first Sunday Sketch posting for PaperWorksCo - you will find me allocated to Sundays for the month of September playing along with the Sunday Sketches!

This is todays sketch and I decided to ink up Harriett the Hippo again .... I just love how versatile Harriett is and how good she looks in any colour!  These gorgeous papers are from 3 Bugs in a Rug - aren't they delish!  Harriett is coloured with copics and I used the deckled rectangles to cut out the panel around her.  That is then mounted on a nesties oval.  I used crystal stickles to highlight the edges of the oval and add a subtle sprinkling of sparkle!  I punched a panel using my MS grass punch ... my idea behind this is I wanted to create the feel of Harriett being in a field of wild flowers!  Do you think it worked?  The flowers are punched using my retro flower punch and then a cranberry dew drop for their centers.

I hope you like my take on this weeks sketch and even more that you're able to join in .... you know, if you join in you are automatically in the running to be chosen for the guest designer spot the following week!

Thanks for your visit today .... after tomorrow the boys are back at school so I plan on enjoying these last couple of days with them.  My schedule will then get somewhat back to normal I hope so I can resume my blog hopping and commenting on a more regular basis!  Until then ... take care and thanks again for any comments you leave!  I love reading them all!

This is darling. I love how you matched the paper so perfectly. The grass punch is great for this one, and I love how you added the glitter around the circles.
