It’s Raining Happy at GHWI


It’s the third Monday of the month and time for another challenge at Get Hippity with {ippity}. We have a wonderful Challenge #19 for you. It’s April, which means “April showers.” In the Get Hippity with {ippity} (GHWI) world “April showers” means that our challenge theme is “Rain and/or Showers.” We want to see rain and/or showers on your project. We want your little piece of art to be anything you want to create but we must see rain and/or showers. The rain or those showers must be the resemblance of water. Please read our challenge blog rules before entering. If you follow our rules and you are randomly chosen, your prize is an {ippity} stamp set of your choice from my {ippity} sales blog.

I kept my project very simple, but it was fun to make! The {ippity} stamp set that I used is “Raining Happy.” I even used the sentiment that is provided with the set. Using a sentiment is very unusual for me, but I like it.
The background was completed using the “rain drop” stamp from the Unity February 2012 KOTM. I stamped the image with white pigment ink and then embossed with white embossing powder. The rain drops were then colored with a glitter pen and covered with a gel glaze pen. I stamped the strawberry image with Memento Tuxedo Black and proceeded to color with my Copics. I filled in the strawberry seeds with a black Spica pen, cut it out, and added foam on the back for dimension. The finishing touch was adding the pearls with a black Pearl Pen.
We, the GHWI Design team, would like to invite you to join us at a few groups that are going on right now. The Get Hippity with {ippity}/Join the Unity Community group at The Crafter’s Café. We have a monthly card game and the prize is a six (6) piece grab bag of {ippity} and/or Unity goodness. Our Facebook group, Get Hippity with {ippity}, is a place for chatter and to share your love of {ippity} and Unity!

Did you see the new release {ippity} bundle pack that Unity is offering? Your imagination will sore with these stamps. They would be great for all your mixed-media project.
Just  pick me, Aletha J. Williams (I’m in the second row from the bottom), as your {ippity} Chick, order some {ippity} and then some Unity. I would appreciate it tremendously!

If you just want some {ippity} goodness visit my {ippity} sales blog to view the latest releases and purchase all the {ippity} you want! You got {ippity}, then you’re Hippity!

Thanks so much for stopping by! I am on my way to link up with the {ippity} Linky Party. If you create a project using {ippity} or Unity, I hope you join us. I also hope you join GHWI for our 19th Challenge. I can’t wait to see what you can create using rain and/or showers.
