It's a Hop... A Hippo Hop! (100 Proof Press + Hydrangea Hippo)

Happy Tuesday! We made it through Monday and today we have an amazing hop for you! It's filled with inspiration and fabulous projects!
WELCOME to the....
If you have been hopping along, then you just came from CARO's blog.
...and now, here is my project:

I pulled out all my 100 Proof Press and Hydrangea Hippo goodies and just started playing.
I loved the lace that I had, but it was white.... so I mixed water and Distress Ink Reinker and dyed them:

I ended up using the dye mixture for a flower too. I just dropped the whole thing in there, then fished it out... I was very happy with how it turned out:
It is a Prima flower. After I dipped it I let it dry on its own and the color migrated to the edges. I just love how it looks.
Using my Cameo, I cut out my title and inked it up with Distress Paint and then stamped it with my 100 Proof Press stamp.
After I had everything on there, but before my pictures were down, I went back and sprayed it all with Heidi Swap Color Shine. ...and then painted it on to my title too.
Now hop on over to see what fabulous things that Candice has in store for you!
Make sure you leave comments on all the blogs... there are some amazing prizes being given away today!
