Friends of Unity Blog Hoppers, June 2020, Wings

Hello friends! Welcome back to our monthly hop! I am so excited for this hop because the cue involves wings. If anyone knows me well, they know I love butterfly stamps. I think I have enough to last a lifetime. I also love feather stamps. Anywhoo, check out this amazing cue:

So cool, right?

Here is my card:














 I fell in love with this mixed media journal page I discovered on Pinterest. I thought something  similar would also look amazing on a card. To create this card, I first stamped the hollyhocks from the Donna Downey/Unity Hollyhocks set. I  then stamped a portion of She Script right on top of the flowers. This She Script stamp is from Christy Tomlinson and Unity. I could not find it on the Unity website, so I'm guessing it has been retired or discontinued. Using my finger, I then rubbed silver metallic ink randomly over the stamped image. I then took a brush and added a blue dimensional  paint by Art Anthology. I then applied crackle paste in a couple of spots. I applied a thin layer, but you can still see the crackling somewhat in my pictures. The butterfly is from the Unity April 2017 Kit of the Month, be my bird. I stamped and then cut it out. Again using my finger, I rubbed silver and gold metallic ink on different parts of the butterfly. I then applied blue dimensional paints with a brush. I then used my finger again to add gold metallic ink randomly on the card. After everything dried I used pop dots on the butterfly and placed it over some Prima wax cord.

I really love how this card came out. I think I will use this design on a future journal page. I will share once I have it finished.

Well, that's all I have today. Please keep moving through the hop and check out all the amazing inspiration from my lovely friends. And remember, we love reading all of your comments on all of our posts.

  21. This card design is already amazingly beautiful, but the addition of metallic ink and all those layers give it such a magical look. So artsy and vintage, but with modern colors
