I am so excited today as I get to hop with the wonderful Unity design team. I was so thrilled to have won last month's be inspired challenge and this was part of the prize yay! I should be your final stop on the hop line up. It started on the Unity Blog so head on back there at any time or if you get lost along the way.
As soon as I saw the colours for this month's challenge, I thought of a steamy mug of chocolate and a candy cane yum! It must be the season :) I created two projects to share with you today I hope you enjoy them.
Here is the first card I made using the challenge colours. I went with the colour block technique and used 3 different Unity stamps Happy Birthday, Key to my heart and Dragonfly of Beauty. I find it hard to use just one stamp set I really like to mix them up. I sponged a block of colour with two different inks. Then embossed the dragonflies with white and copper embossing powder. I used a spoon to get the powder exactly where I needed it to go. I love how the colours contrast against the white card.
If you know me and my cards you know I LOVE butterflies. Last weekend I got to visit a butterfly conservatory for my birthday. It was the most beautiful place. I could have sat there all day and watched them flutter away. This is one of the photos I took that inspired my next card.
This is my second card that is based loosely on the card sketch. I used my two favourite stamps sets on this one Insightful Meadows and A Friend Loveth. I sponged the background with distress ink and then embossed the images with black and white embossing powder. I cut the image into three then mounted them on to card and placed my little embossed butterflies on each panel. I just love it!
I hope you enjoyed today's blog hop and are left feeling inspired to go and create. Remember and leave a comment on all of the blogs today to be in with a chance to win the prize. You can head back to the Unity blog and get some more inspiration. Thanks for visiting have a blessed day.
