I'm Back With a Hip Hop Hangover

Hip Hop Hangover

I'm back!! Did you miss me?

The whole screw-up-my-back thing had me almost completely out of commission for a week, but it's getting better every day and I started stamping again on Wednesday, just in time (barely) to make a card for the Unity Guest DT Contest.

The winners were announced last night on Hip Hop. Nope, not me, but that's okay. I'm pleased with what I was able to make. There were over 100 entries!! Stephanie and Michelle were the lucky two. Great job, ladies!! I can't wait to see what they come up with.

So what did I make, you ask? I decided to play around with the spotlighting technique. Since I wanted to match my patterned paper (Urban Oasis, retired SU!), my drop flowers are kind of a greyish blue with just a hint of green. For the Copic users out there, that would be a combination of BG10, BG11, B52, B60, B91 and W2, depending on the petal. The leaves are YG23 and YG67.

That's all from me for now. If you haven't hit Unity yet this weekend, everything (and I do mean everything!) is 30% off. This would be a great time to pick up the handles, which are just beyond awesome. I use them for all of my unmounted stamps, no matter which company they come from.

Back later with a quick EtsyInspired post.

This has absolutely nothing to do with your card, but I had to say this because I've been perusing and drooling over Etsy this morning.

Why didn't you ever tell me about Etsy? I have a wishlist of about oh 8743 items right now of stuff that I want but don't need.
