Happy H{ippity} Hop Day



Hello!
Back from vacay and what did I do? Entered the H{ippity} Hop at the eleventh hour, of course! Lol. That's how craft-deprived I was. Couldn't wait to get back to the craft desk...

These beauties are from Ippity's Fishy Philosophy set. I knew right away that I wanted them to swim in and out of the seaweed in the ocean so I used acetate to accomplish that. I stamped the seaweed with StazOn, colored in the leaves with a Bic Mark-It marker in Key Lime, then paper pieced the fish. Two to swim under the acetate on cool water DP and one lovely to swim above it. I stamped more ocean plants on the front of the card with Versamark Dazzle in Champagne. More deets can be found in my SCS Gallery. Hope you like it!

Join the blog hop here. There will be a random drawing of a comment on one of the blogs for a prize, so be sure to leave love wherever you go!
Happy day to you,

Cindy (aka Scrapcollectr)
