H{ippity} Hop Monday!

Yup, it's H{ippity} Hop time, so make sure to visit all the {ippity} blogs to enjoy all the awesome inspiration! 

Okay, if anyone has noticed, I have a 'Copic Certified Designer' tag on my right sidebar...YES, I am officially COPIC CERTIFIED!  It was last Monday that I attended the certification class with Jennie Black...she is totally adorable and so sweet!  It was her first official certification class that she taught, so since Marianne (Copic guru who colors magnificently) happened to be in town she came to assist her.  It was so much fun to have them both at this class, and Marianne is truly fun.

The {ippity} challenge this week is "SCALLOPS-IHHC20", so of course, I wanted to play. I used one of the scallop stamps from Sweet Thoughts of Spring for my grass on pattern paper.  I stamped the image with Memento Rich Cocoa onto white c/s and colored everything.  I don't have ALL of the Copic markers and I really need more 'greens' to blend my greens together, but this was as close as I could get for now.
From Unity and {ippity} Projects
Stamps: Straight from the Heart and Sweet Thoughts of Spring (if you would like to purchase these sets, go to my left sidebar and click on my {ippity} link)
C/S: Certainly Celery, Bashful Blue, DSP, GP White
Ink: Memento Rich Cocoa and Copics
Accessories: Certainly Celery Polytwill Ribbon, pop dots, Crystal Effects

Thanks so much for coming by and have a H{ippity} Monday!
