Rosey Hippo 1331 ~ Sandra Caldwell New Release

Hi everyone! Sandra Caldwell's DT is back from our lovely long break and so excited to share some of her wonderful new images. She has switched her new release day from Mondays to Fridays. The new release I chose to play with first is called Rosey Hippo #1331. I love her attitude and sassy outfit...she makes me smile!

I coloured Rosey with a mix of Prismacolor and Polychromos pencils making sure that her lipstick coordinated with her lovely rose tattoo and flashy toes. Rosey was fussy cut leaving a narrow white border, matted on black card stock, and fussy cut again. She was popped up on foam tape to give her dimension and create a natural shadow.

The background began as a secondary print pulled from my gel plate. I had used a Joggles foam stamp and acrylic paint. Tiger Lily Archival ink was used to add a Bo Bunny text stamp and Magenta Hue Archival Ink was used to apply a VLV number stamp to the background. Jet Black Archival Ink was used to add dots from a Ellen Hutson stamp. To give Rosey a place to stand, hot pink and orange washi tape was adhered to white card stock and then to the lower right area. A thin strip of designer paper was layered over the longer of the two washi pieces before two enamel dots were adhered to the ends of the tape.

A scalloped border was die cut from the same striped dp and then layered over another cut from black. These were adhered to the left side of the page. A simple border was doodled with a black pen and the washi tape was outlined as well. The sentiment was printed onto white card stock, cut into individual words and matted with black. Foam tape was also used to pop the words up. The outside edge of the page was coloured with Black Big Brush Pen before the page was matted with black.

Thanks for popping by today. Rosey and I appreciate that. To see the other wonderful new releases by Sandra and also the awesome DT makes with them, be sure and pop by the Sandra Caldwell Stamp Fans Facebook group where they will be posted throughout the day. You can also stop over to Sandra's Etsy shop, Babycakes Digis and Designs, to see not only these newbies but also all of the other wonderful images in her shop.
