A Hipster-Keyring!!

Hello there.... Jenny checking in with you again :0)

I have something a little different to share with you today!!

..... the Hipster-potamus keyring!!

I stumbled upon these painted wooden tags in my stash a few weeks ago and this Avery Elle 
stamp set was on my desk so I decided to have a play :0)
He is stamped with Black Stazon and coloured with Prisma Pencils... I love how the 
colouring has covered the outlines giving him a realistic look.
His glasses are, again, stamped with black stazon and a few highlights added with white and grey.

I wasn't really sure what to do with him, a keyring seemed an obvious answer but the back
was unpainted so I used patterned paper and a speech bubble from
'Picture It' to neaten it up :0)

He's been coated in a layer of clear matt varnish to protect him from knocks and scratches 
but it's fair to say he's just an ornament at the moment until he finds a bunch of keys to call home :0)

I have a few more tags left of different shapes and sizes and he was fun to make so he 
may not be on his own for long!!!

Unfortunately the Hipster-Potamus stamp set is out of stock at the moment 
but you can find his pal Hipster-Giraffe here as a trendy alternative

Thanks for stopping by :0)
