Hip Hop with a Sketch!

Hello Unity and Ippity friends!!

Thanks so much for visiting my blog today and joining us for today's Hip Hop blog hop with the Unity and Ippity DT's.  If you have come to me by way of Karen Maldanado's blog, then you are on the right track, but if you aren't starting at the beginning, then please head to the Unity blog to start from the top of the list!!

Today we have a sketch challenge for you and some of the girls have decided to play along.  You are invited to play along with us and create your own sample using the sketch and just upload it to the SCS Gallery using the keywords Unity and HHSC16!  There is a prize in store this week so be sure to check out the details on the Unity forum at SCS!!


Here is the sketch we are working with...



And here is what I created using the sketch as my starting point...


I found these amazing papers made by the new company called Echo Park at my LSS and fell in love with them.  The line is called Sweet Summertime.  And something tells me that you are going to be seeing a lot more of Echo Park on my blog in the next few months... but I can't tell you why just yet!  But you Ippity fans will find out soon enough!!  ;-)


One of the flower images from the Now and Always set was stamped three times, twice in the red striped paper and once in the Green checked paper.  I cut out three layers and then placed them one on top of the other to create the dimensional flower.  The BG brad was added to the center.


The banner is from the Love in Return set by Ippity and the sentiment is also from the Now and Always set.  I used some of the Crinkle ribbon that Eva made for me to finish the project off.

So what do you think about the Echo Park paper.  They are looking for more fans on Facebook, so if you are interested in following them, you can click HERE to become a fan!  If you want to tell them that I sent you... I might get lucky and win a prize!!  :-)

Do you have these amazing Ippity stamps that I used today?  Well if you don't, be sure to get yourself an Ippity Chick to buy them from!!  You can find one by visiting the link HERE!

Next on your stop for the Hop will be the Oh-so-talented Lisa Arana!!  I know that she is sure to inspire!!

Next Blog


 Enjoy the rest of the Hop and please come by and visit us on the Unity forum for some chatting and prizes throughout the day!!
