Hip Hop! Unity Color Challenge

It's Friday! Wait I think it needs more exclamation marks don't you? Let's try that again. It's Friday!!!!!!! There that's better don't you agree? Okay enough kidding around, let's get down to business.

Over at Splitcoaststampers, Unity hosts a challenge every Thursday for their Hip Hop (i.e. blog hop). This is my first time trying one. I have a ton of Unity stamps and love, love, love them. You can see the previous post for another card made with Unity stamps. The challenge was to use the colors, red, blue & green and here's what i came up with using their Bevy of Butterflies stamp set. By the way if you never visited the Splitcoaststampers site you really don't know what you're missing. It's a great resource for new techniques, ideas and anything stamping.
Thanks for stopping by!

This weeks Chirper Challenge was to choose a sketch from and use stars and buttons which are favorite embellishments of our fearless design team leader Jackie Solomon. I chose sketch #139 pictured here. My take is a navy card with bright orange, green and blue. I used my new stamp set from Unity called Stylin' Stars. I really loved this challenge. Thanks Jackie!

An owl with glasses????

Yes! and she is adorable. Made this card for my friend a while ago who just loves animal prints hence the pink leopard print designer paper from DCWV. The stamp is from Pink Cat Studio's colored in with Prismacolor pencil and gamasol then a little bling with stickles and glossy accents. She's so funky and cute with her little vintage glasses don't you think???

Thanks for looking : ) Diana
