My card today features Gloria The Hippo from Magnolia. I’ve had this cute little stamp for a while now and the TOMIC challenge this week ‘Animal Mania’, to use a Magnolia animal stamp and Magnolia Patterned Paper, was just the encouragement I needed to ink her up.

This is what I came up with:

gloria hippo card

She’s such a cute little thing and just perfect for my Magnolia DP. Gloria is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Copic Express Card and coloured with Copic Sketch Markers. The Copics used are as follows: C7, C5, C3, C1, C00, RV13, RV11, RV10, RV000, BG11, BG10

The inside is decorated to match with some DP and a sentiment.
