Hippo Birdie Watercolor

Good morning! I had so much fun digging into my unused stamps stash to make a couple of fun watercolor cards - and instead of just making one card, I made a masculine and feminine version all at the same time! I really enjoy doing that whenever possible, since it is an easy way to do all the work and thinking at one time, and accomplish 2 cards in almost the same amount of time! Here is the feminine version:

My inspiration was the current Lawnscaping Challenge - Watercoloring:

I also am playing along with the current Curtain Call challenge - Anything Goes:

I used the cute Lawn Fawn set that was made to celebrate Lawn Fawn's 4th birthday, Year Four. LOVE how easily these created my scene! No masking required at all! I watercolored it in, then trimmed to fit on a panel cut with Avery Elle's Pinked Elle-ments die from Simon Says cardstock.

Here is my masculine version - notice the watercoloring is pretty much identical?

I hand trimmed my own banner out of the same Simon Says cardstock, and heat embossed the sentiment in white on it. Layered everything together with foam adhesive for lots of fun dimension, and added both pattern papers from Crate Paper's Open Road 6x6 paper pad.

Thanks for stopping by today! Hope you are having a wonderful day!!!
