Hold onto your seats today, because this is my 5th and final day of Growing in Unity, as well as my Friends with Flair post, and my entry for about 4 different challenges! This is a card that has been in my head for a while, so I was excited to finally be able to make it come alive on paper! Here is what I made for today:
And here is the first challenge - the Unity July KOTM sketch challenge (I took some liberty with the design, but it is still there!):
The second challenge is the Case Study Challenge for this week - and here is the inspiration card (I used the color scheme, flowers, and kraft paper for inspiration):
The other two challenges are the Unity Opportunity Challenge - Flowers, and the Unity Blog Challenge - I Do (wedding or love theme)
I made my flower with one Ippity image, from the set called Now and Always, then stamped it on several different pattern papers, all from Crate Paper's Pretty Party 6x6 paper pad. I then fussy cut out each layer (can we say hand cramp?!?!?!)
Before attaching the layers, I inked the edges of each layer with Tim Holtz distress ink in Vintage Photo.
Then I put a dot of fast drying glue in the center to adhere each layer, and after it dried, I curled all the edges up to give it some dimension.
Added 3 little stick on gems slightly off center in the middle of the flower, and tucked the leaves from the same set (also fussy cut) behind the flower.
Finished off with a sentiment from another Ippity set called Quotes a'la Happy, and more ink on the edges of the kraft paper and pattern paper in the background.
Thanks for dropping by to see me today! Remember to leave a comment before you go for a chance to win 2 Itty Bitties of your choice! I will draw a winner and post tomorrow morning!
Edited to Add: I'm not sure if it is okay to link up a previously made creation - but I immediately thought of this card when I saw the Moxie Fab World Focal Point Challenge! So - I'm linking it up there!
