Another Unity Creation

     I saw a video from Jennifer McGuire on this technique.  If I find it again, I will link it here.  I thought it looked super, so I wanted to give it a try.

Here is what I used:

Hero Hues Unicorn white ink
Colored pencils
DP from Little Yellow Bicycle, Vintage Summer pk.
Stamps from the May and April (sentiment) KOM from Unity

      The Unicorn ink is a pigment ink, so it will take a little longer to dry.  Once that happens, color with colored pencils.  I decided to paper piece the centers of my butterfly wings, and edge them with Diamond Stickles.  I added pearls as accents.

     I believe I will enter this in the "Be Inspired Challenge", over on the Unity blog.  This will cover the color portion of the challenge.

     Who would have ever thought that the temps would have gotten down into the low 40's, this late in May!!!  Had to turn on the heat pump last night.  Still have not gotten the garden planted, and maybe it's a good thing!  Have a wonderful beginning to your week.

No idea what Jennifer's looked like (but will check it out) but love this one! The paper pieced butterflies are so pretty too.

Those butterflies are really cute the way you've done them, but how in the world are you going to use all that pretty paper by making tiny butterflies?
