Splash Thanks

Splash Thanks
Made this card for one of my returning Copic markers buyers.

For this card, I play with Less is More - Week 215 - One Layer Week - Include An Animal only as one layer card is really my biggest challenge. I do not know why I always have issue making one layer card. Thus, this time would be a great challenge for me to tackle and I am glad that I manage to make this card! :P

Close-up: The hippopotamus
It is a clean and simple (CAS) card. First, I draw a frame on a white card base using pencil. Then, the hippopotamus image is stamped onto the card base with its legs a bit off the frame line. The hippopotamus is then colored using Copic markers.


Close-up: The punny sentiment
As for the sentiment, I wanted a punny and funny sentiment. Thus, I made up 'Splash Thanks'. Then, the splash of water is stamped on the left and right of the sentiment to give some realistic of water splashing looks.

Finally, a permanent lines are drawn for the frame.

Dimension : 10.16cm x 15.24cm or 4" x 6"
Type : Hotizontal fold
Inlay : Yes
