Hippo Magnet Fun! TRHD New Release

Hello Everyone,
Heather here and I am showcasing the new Hippo Botanical Stamp Set from The Rabbit Hole Designs.  I decided to try something a bit different and I absolutely love this Hippo image, so I made them into magnets to see everyday, you can see them in action on my fridge in the pictures here.  
I stamped the image onto two different pieces of our Spring Floral #2 papers and then fussy cut them out, I stamped the image again onto Neenah 110 lb solar white and used my alcohol pens to color them in and then fussy cut just the Hippos out.  I used colored pencils and shaded the floral paper in the nooks and crannies to get some depth and dimension and then I also added clear shimmer pen over the whole flower portion of the image.  I then coated my images with Versamark and then three coats of UTEE (Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel), heating each layer with my heat tool.  This gave it a nice thick, shiny coat to protect the image and give it some durability.
In the end I love how they turned out.... Hope you do as well.  It is fun to do something unexpected and out of the norm with your images, so I encourage you to try something new with one of your favorite images, and please tag The Rabbit Hole on social media so we can see what you have created, we love to get inspiration from you!
