Growing In Unity - Day 2

Hello again! 

Thanks for visiting again for day 2 of my week of Growing In Unity!

I absolutely love this giant butterfly from the Thanks above and Beyond stamp set, and his little body is just big enough to add a splinter of foam tape to create layers. This beautiful guy just pops off the card!


You can see I added three layers by this angle and the foam tape lifts the layers just enough to make it pop. I really love adding dimension to my projects when I can - I have those giant Scotch foam mounting tape rolls in my wish list on Amazon and surprise myself each time I need to re-order them.  I colored the butterfly with my watercolor pencils and took a damp brush to lightly fade the color.


All the papers I used are Close to My Heart cardstock, the splattered ink is from Mister Huey's, and the twine is something I picked up in the dollar bins at Target (I love that store).

Thanks for stopping by again! Please don't forget to leave a comment for a chance to win! I get to randomly select 2 folks to win 25 Unity Stamps at the end of my week, so be sure to come back every day. 

Have a great Tuesday!
Brittany
