let your dreams take flight

Take flight is the challenge, this week at Less is More.
The Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge i shimmer and shine.

For my card I used a panel of Bristol smooth cardstock, stamped the Katzelkraft hippo from Les Jungle in Simon Says Stamp intense black ink and colored it with my watercolor markers. Not sure I like these markers of this paper, but it worked.

The sentiment is from Stampendous tweet chirps and I stamped it with Versafine onyx black ink. Adhered the panel to a cardbase and added some blueish glittery enamel dots from Marianne Design to help your eye travel acrosse the card. also to repeat the blue int he wings...

I thought the sentiment was perfect with a hippo that only has one fly :-D

I used to dream that a lot when I was a kid too, but it never actually happened except for when I took a plane haha
