February, friends of Unity blog hop!



Good Morning Crafty friends, Thank you for joining us for another month of the Friends of Unity blog hop.

Since, it's February I had Pinks on the brain.  For this card I used distress oxide in  Festive berries, worn lipstick and Festive Berries. for the background.   I used a Tim Holtz stencil to give the cross hatch that looks like the kisses.xxx !  The stencil number is THS099   I put down the spun sugar first then went over that with the distress microglaze, I just use my finger.  Then I added the other colors going in that triangle shape adding where I thought it was needed.   I than colored the image with the same colors but used regular distress instead of the oxide.  I added washi and the little sticker for a touch of black.  black is probably not allowed buy I like to rebel so there.  haha  The tiny hearts that are in white are a die called mini hearts set from simon says stamp.   The cute little Cuddlebug is found HERE



I'll be posting a video onto the Unity show and tell page on how I did the background.    I am not 100% sure how to do all this yet but will give it a try.  I was unable to upload it here.  Still trying to figure this all out. Here is the link to the video on how I did this background https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iO-kVXztIgI

That little critter is the sweetest! I had to look twice at the blending brush, I thought it actually had a heart on it then realized it was a die cut on the actual brush side. Lol. Apparently my eyes don’t do morning.
