HSS Color Challenge is "On Point"

Our latest color challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments is perfectly "on point" for my swingin' Hippest Hippo card.  I do believe this bright blue tutu wearing' hippo super cute.

For this card I inked up the Hippest Hippos Stamp Set and used three sets of dies: the Hippo Dies, the Fabulous Frames Dies, and my stampin' bestie tools the Stitched Rectangles Dies.  I decided to make my tutu wearin' hippo swinging in some loops of Orchid Oasis twine from the 2022-24 In Color Baker's Twine Pack.  I love how she is swingin' over a garden of flowers in the challenge colors. Dotting the center of each flower is an Iridescent Pearl Basic Jewel.

I also added a bit of texture with the Dainty Diamonds (retired) Embossing Folder and splatters from Wink of Stella.  Speaking of texture and embossing, both the Frames and Hippos Dies cut elements AND they leave embossed details that add subtle visual interest.
