Today we're sharing a card using a set called Being Schooled.

Today A Reader Tomorrow A Leader


  • A6 white card base (4" x 5.5" approx.) portrait
  • Stamp hippos in black ink directly on to card base, masking each image prior to stamping the next until all images are masked
  • Die cut a rectangle aperture from masking paper and adhere over the image
  • Create background using ink blending technique with cerise and lilac inks
  • Remove all masks, colour image with markers and add white highlight detail with gel pen
  • Stamp sentiment with black ink

Thank you for looking and happy stamping!

    I wish I was still going to school. These hippos would definitely be “My Best Friends Forever”.
