This Hippo is Ready to P-A-R-T-Y!!! Sketch-it Saturday with Unscripted Sketches #216

Welcome to the weekend... and there's always a reason to celebrate, right? Well this party girl is all dolled up bringing birthday wishes using Unscripted Sketches #216. When I visited Viva Las VegaStamps! back in April, I fell in love with this stamp and had to have her... "Hippo with Party Hat" #1454.

I made my own tissue tape with Miracle Tape and Miracle Sheets {a full letter-size sheet of Miracle Tape}. The colored tissue comes with a tissue wrap with the printed "happy birthday" on it; as you see above... except for the yellow. The yellow tissue section I created by stamping the "Happy Happy Birthday" #10479 stamp repeatedly in Milled Lavender Ranger Distress Ink. The green confetti tissue at the top is recycled from a gift I received {I've been having fun using this craftily}. I fussy cut and hand colored my party girl with my Ranger Distress Markers; then grounded her on a strip of grey spotted washi tape. The bright colored tissue really makes the party girl pop. I finished her off with some eyelash googlie eyes.

No card is complete until
you add some GOOGLIE eyes!

What is Sketch it Saturdays at Unscripted Sketches? Every Saturday morning a new sketch is posted for the week. Flip the sketch, rotate it… create a card, a scrapbook page, a wall hanging, digital, paper, fabric, paint, anything your imagination comes up with! There is no right or wrong way, as long as you are using the Unscripted sketch as the inspiration for your creation! And everyone is invited to join in the fun... and post your creation on their page via inlinkz for all the world to see!
