In the pink

I can't believe we're at August already, time is definitely going at double quick time now!
Hopefully August weather will be better than July's - the best that could be said about it was 'dull and damp'.  Maybe we used up all our sunny days at the start of lockdown!

I'm pleased to see the MFT Summer School is back - it's always great to learn new tips and rediscover some old ones!  Day 1 is visual triangle, so I used my silver stars for this.
For my background I masked off a square, used some pale pink ink in a starburst stencil and then layered up another little stars one on top of it with some darker pink ink.  Hippos coloured with watercolour pencils and clear gloss/glitter added to their tutus.

I love your star rays behind your cute little hippos. This is an adorable card. I hopped over to watch the video on design triangles. It was a good reminder of how to make our cards more pleasing to the eye. When I worked in kitchen design, we always had to consider a "kitchen triangle"--sink, stove and refrigerator in a triangle within the floor plan of the room. Funny how that works in so many different situations.

I like how you used both the stencils for the background-a really fun idea and uses the sketch in a unique and stunning way. I love these dancing hippos, and coloured perfectly and grounded so well with the sentiment. A fun card and so pleased you joined Time Out x
