hip, hippo, hooray! - Happy Birthday - Pause Dream Enjoy #14

Wednesday April 4, 2018
Hello to you and hope your April is off to a good start.. Today at
Pause Dream Enjoy #14 we have another fun challenge for you..
The Orange team has chosen the theme  COLOR IT
I love coloring.. be it paints, pencils or copics.. I feel so relaxed as I color my images and bring them to life.  So todays challenge was easy. I started by using Ranger ink and my sky and ground template to create the scene. I then took used my Mission paints to color the My Favorite Things hippos. I used copics to color the balloons, bowtie and party hat. I added a white gel pen highlight to the images.  The sentiment is from MFT and Simon Says.  Great.. I have another birthday card completed for 2018.
