Hip Hopping with Unity




Unity Hip Hop Challenge - Wing It

Make a card or project using Unity stamps that has something with wings.

I used an image with tiny butterflies.

Stamps: Nov08 & June09 KOM
Paper: white, cool Caribbean, Bermuda Bay, black, Thoroughly Modern dsp
Ink: black, Bermuda Bay, Copics: BG49 Duck Blue, BG23 Coral Sea, BG15 Aqua, BG10 Cool Shadow, C0 - Cool Gray
Accessories: ribbon, brads, SU scallop edge, large oval & modern label punches










Ways to Use it Challenge: Try using some variegated ribbon (you could make your own if you wish), variegated thread, yarn, paper etc.

I have just one color of variegated ribbon. Pink. So, I picked out some Unity flowers since it's Hip Hop day and I've been using Unity stamps for the challenges. I used so many pinks that I lost track of the ones I used. For shadowing, I used E0000 Floral White.

Stamps all Unity: Squatty Vase, sentiment from July KOM, decorative circles from the incentive Stylin' Stars set with July KOM.
Paper: white, chocolate chip, pretty in pink, rose red
Ink: Palette burnt umber, regal rose, SU chocolate chip marker, Copic markers (Lots of pinks & Floral white E0000 for shadowing)
Accessories: circle punch, ribbon, Nesties (Wish RAK), dimensionals










Unity Hip Hop Challenge: Not A Ribbon In Sight!

I LOVE ribbon! But since I was going without, I decided to make a card for a boy. These creatures really are cute in their ugly sort of way. LOL!

I was the lucky winner of this challenge by having my card randomly drawn. Woo hoo! I meant to get it on yesterday's garage sale and I was so busy I forgot. {sigh} The set I one was the hot air balloon set. I don't remember names very well anymore. Must be my age. LOL! Anyway, the real name of this set is Love in the Air. You can see it here.

Stamps: Cuter than Most (Unity)
Paper: white, black, wild wasabi
Ink: black, Copic markers: G24, B24R27, YR12, Y08, V17, C0, C1, C3
Accessories: Martha Stewart edge punch, brads, Scoor-Pal, dimensionals
