I hope.

G'day and welcome to my stop on the {Ippity} Hop today!

Thanks for taking the time to stop by on your busy day...

...I hope you have a terrific day!

One of the main reasons I was drawn to {Ippity} stamps was my love for airbrushing and how so many of the {Ippity} stamps could be used and combined for this technique. I haven't airbrushed in a while so today's cards are both airbrushed with Copics. Don't worry if you don't own Copics and an air compressor because you could get very similar results with sponging, watercolours or chalks....just to name a few!

My first card uses stamps from the set The Simple Things and I used only part of the sentiment "While I breathe, I hope."

My second card uses stamps from Now & Always and Music of my Heart. I love this flower from Now & Always and can't believe it's taken my this long to actually airbrush it! I think there might be some more of these on the horizon!

You can purchase all the {Ippity} stamp sets from me HERE and you won't pay any shipping within the US!

Don't forget to visit the {Ippity} Blog for the full list of today's Blog Hop participants and all their wonderful {Ippity} creations...and to see what this week's challenge is!
