H{ippity} Hop!

HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!!

Wishing you the most LOVING and HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!  And it's H{ippity} Hop day, so time for a sweet hop, too!  Since it's Valentine's Day, I have a special project to share with you today.  I made it based on this week's Ippity INSPIRATION.  I have to say this inspiration photo sure INSPIRED me a LOT, can you tell????  Take a look at my gift to Michael and now it's hanging about our fireplace....he LOVED it and now we can see it every day.


I started out my canvas by painting it with Gesso and then painting it with  Luminarte Twinkling H2O's....gosh, I love this product so much! I also painted my corrugated cardboard in with Luminarte's Radiant Rain Color Concentrate Daubers, which is so easy to use and cover surfaces with quickly and the shimmer it gives out is AMAZING!!!!  My pretty flourish is the Scrap-mart Exclusive Flourish Border, which it cut out of chipboard and painted it again with Luminarte Twinkling H2O's.  And here are a couple of close up shots.



And here is the picture where my canvas inspiration came from.  Funny enough, this also kind of meets our color combo.  Love it!


We are on the third week of our Ippity monthly challenge and those two hearts are what inspired me...I can't wait to see how you get inspired by them!!!!  I used one of our first release Ippity stamps, the Straight from the Heart set.  I used the sentiment and the two sweet little birdies.  Here is the picture of it.


The second set I used is a current set, Cherish Your Dreams.  LOVE this set sooo much!


Well, that is it for today and now head on over to see what gorgeous creation our FABULOUS Karen has waiting for you.



Have a FABULOUS day!!!

Hugs,
