Unity Kit of the Month Blog Hop!

If you got here from The Bunny Nest then you're in the right spot! Isn't Ky fantastic? She's not only creative and wise (see her post from May 4), but a wonderful friend to boot. If you didn't come from Ky's blog, click on the banner at the top of this post to go to the Unity blog and start at the beginning. You won't want to miss any of the fabulous projects from the 100 peeps who are participating this weekend.

To be honest, I haven't had a lot of mojo lately. I did, however, have enough to create this ATC and I used 2 different Kits of the Month. The butterflies and the Celebrate sentiment came from April's Fresh Beginnings and "splendor" is half of Autumn splendor from September's kit Friendship. Love. Miracles.
The butterfy flowers are individually inked with Brilliance dew drops. The stems are a Colorbox catseye pigment ink. Using the pointed ends of the pads enabled me to get different colours into the little spaces. I then embossed them with clear detail powder. The sentiments are embossed with Judikins Galaxy and the background is Plum Blossom Twinkling H2O's.

Word to the wise - don't try to emboss something when your Twinkling H2O's aren't quite dry.

Now head on over to see Vickilyn and see what goodies she has to share this weekend!
