I Heart {ippity} Blog Hop

Happy Friday, everyone!

Welcome to the I Heart {ippity} Design Team Blog Hop!  I am SO excited to be part of Heather's {ippity} team.  I love sharing fun projects with you!

First off, if you are not familiar with {ippity} then you are missing out! {ippity} is a line of rubber stamps manufactured by the Unity Stamp Co. The {ippity} line is separate from the Unity line but has the same wonderful quality, it is marketed though Unity Endorsed {ippity} Chicks, reps for {ippity}.     Although I am no longer selling {ippity} myself, I *happen* to have a fabulous friend who does!  Heather Flaherty is my {ippity} CHICK and would love to be yours! To order {ippity} just go to the Unity Website and on the left hand side click {ippity} - Pick a CHICK & Order. That will take you to the {ippity} chick page where you can pick Heather as your {ippity} Chick


My project today allowed me to play with some of my Copics.  I just got Copic certified, so I want to color all the time! LOL  One of the techniques we learned was a stonewash technique, but I also thought it looked like colors that get faded in the summer.  I tried this technique on this butterfly from {ippity}'s Devoted stamp set.  I also added a touch of Spica Clear glitter to the butterfly wings.  The sentiment is from Music of my Heart.  Although it doesn't show well in the photo, I also pierced a line under the sentiment to "ground" it.
To make this blog hop even more fun, Heather is giving away a prize to one person who comments on all of the DT blogs! So get commenting! LOL
