Happy Hippo's and Big Butterfly- CCCCAct4

I finally got to make a card for Stacey's Curtain Call Challenge. (Last week I was planning on participating before I went out of town for a family reunion, but two days before I left, I got sick and couldn't leave bed! No fun!) So this week for her Act 4 Color Challenge the colors were Brilliant Blue, Pixie Pink, Real Red and Whisper White. These colors are not colors I would have ever put together, but I did manage to make two cards, because the first one I was not sure of, but then the more I got used to the colors, I kind of liked it!

Here is my first card. It uses the set Pun Fun. I stamped the hippo's in Basic Black Classic ink on Watercolor paper and then colored them using the appropriate colors with my Aqua Painter pen. I made the hippo's in a line by doing a little masking. It is hard to see in the picture, but there are a line of embossed dots on the top and the bottom of the white card stock. I finished off the card by tying a piece of Real Red 5/8" Grosgrain ribbon.

Here is my second card. It was very simple and quick to make! I die cut a Real Red and a Pixie Pink butterfly from the Stampin' Up! Beautiful Butterflies die using the Big Shot and then layered them onto a piece of Brilliant Blue card stock added a sentiment and I was done!

Thanks Stacey for getting me to use colors that are neglected in my stamping room!

Thanks for looking!

ETA: Stacey picked my hippo card for her Show Stopper Award this week! So I get to post this badge on my blog!

This is very cute! Both of them! I usually try to play Stacey's challenge, but these colors stumped me and time got away as well.
Hope you're feeling better!
