Out of luck!

All that scrumptious food and he’s not allowed any of it!

This was the second card I made using Rosie’s sketch and food theme at the Let’s Get Stamping group at Craftbubble.Except this time I turned it upside down.

This is the original sketch:

The hippo is a 99p one from Imaginisce and has been coloured with Promarkers.As he’d been stamped onto patterned paper the ink tends to bleed a little so I had to do some dentistry work with a white gel pen – if only it were that simple in real life!All the papers on this card are Basic Grey Cupcake and all edges have had the Tim Holtz Paper Distresser treatment.I made a sign with the sentiment that you can buy from the Imaginisce Wild Things collection to match.I hung it from the main image using  an antiqued metal brad to make it look like it had been outside for a while with some of my favourite hairy string.The ice lolly is a sticker from the same paper set and I’ve used Glossy Accents drips on it  for the circles on the sketch.
