I needed a cute hippo, for a friends Christmas Card. Its a cute song... I get it.
"I want a hippopotamus for Christmas
Only a hippopotamus will do
Don't want a doll, no dinky Tinker Toy
I want a hippopotamus to play with and enjoy"
there are ALOT of punch art hippos out there, but let me tell you NOT a lot of tutorials!
So, I picked the hippo I liked best, and through trial and error came up with this cutie-patootie to add to my twist card:
I'm especially proud of her hand drawn facial features, I am not known for my coloring skills!
Super cute, and if you're looking to make your own, you can buy a tutorial - or you can play with your circle and oval punches, some sponge shading, and some hand drawn details. ;-)
