Unity Hip Hop

Welcome to this Thursday's
UNITY STAMP CO. HIP HOP
**You should be arriving here from Renee Aslette's Blog**
As with each week's Hip Hop, there are THREE $20 Unity Gift Certificates!

TIME TOGETHER Card
This card didn't quite come together as I had envisioned it in my head,
but it will do!  If I had planned a little better, I could have included one of the
two sweet sentiments also found in the stamp set.
I LOVE this stamp by Iron Orchid, Time Well Spent.
I stamped the clock onto the yellow patterned paper, trimmed it out and then
machine stitched it over the same image that I had stamped onto the blue paper.  
I used watercolor pencils to color in the birds.  
I can't wait to try it out again in another fashion...and it has the sweetest sentiment
stamps that goes along with it!

Patterned Papers by Christy Tomlinson/Pink Paislee

And I missed out on getting in my card in time for this week's
STAMP OF THE WEEK 
so here it is...
I had so much fun with this!  As you can see, I stamped the image three different
times and then trimmed out and layered the various pieces.  I kept the design
clean-and-simple with the addition of a neat red bow at the top :)
