The Latin word "hippopotamus" is derived from the ancient Greek, meaning "horse of the river". Most of us have most likely seen them in zoos rather than in their native habitat - lakes and rivers throughout the African jungle.
A panel of cork was adhered to the white card base then another panel of patterned paper with safari Jeeps in various colors was adhered. The oval frame was die cut from cork and the solid oval was cut from blue DSP that coordinates with the blue Jeeps. The leaves were stamped in three shades of green and fussy cut. The image was stamped in gray ink, colored with Copics and die cut.
