Growing in Unity Day by Day All Week Long: Day 4


Day 4 of my Week with Unity and it is also Hip Hop Thursday!!! SO party peeps head over to the Unity forum at SCS to check out what all the fun. I saved my favorite creation for this week for Hip Hop day!

This is a white craft box that I altered to hold a gift. Check out the awesome butterflies! I LOVE THEM! I got them as singles now I need Angela to release the others as singles as well! I layered the butterflies and added stickles. Yes I use glitter on everything! My pattern paper is from a DCWV Stack pack and I heat embossed this awesome quote in black. Pretty simple but I thought it is rather striking.

But WAIT there is more. You didn't think I would make a gift box with no gift did you? Check out what I put inside. These are bathroom tiles I picked up at a home improvement store. Tumbled tile to be more exact. I stamped the background using the floral stamp from the Believe kit. I used green Stazon Ink. The butterfly worked out really cool! I used to make these types of coasters all the time. I used to stamp with black Stazon and color with Slick Writer markers. This time I really wanted to use my copics for the variety of colors and vibrancy of colors. SOOO, I stamped my butterflies on white tissue paper in my Brillance Graphite Black ink and colored with my copics. I used modge podge to glue and seal the tile! I was so excited how well this worked and it looks great!

Don't forget you have all day to leave comments on my Unity posts this week to be entered to win a Unity Single! I will announce the winner tonight during Hip Hop!

That is it for now!

Till Later....
