Marching Out

First, I want to thank EVERYONE who left all the lovely comments, not only on my blog, but on all the blogs of the first World Inspirational Blog Hop! Yeah, we had a few hiccups, but by and large, it was so worth all the inspiration. If you didn't get to complete the hop - you still can. Eryn put together a great list of those participants on SCS. You can still hop to their sites, but remember, you may need to scroll down a little to find March 28th's posts.

Today's project is one I created for the Unity March Kit of the Month contest. A lot of ladies played this contest, so go to the website and see them all! Posts are due today. Here's mine:

I used versamark ink on the flower silhouette (designed, I believe, by Lindsay Spencer for Unity), and was trying to go for a resist application. However, I was pleasantly surprised when I began chalking the background to see that the Versamark actually picked up more chalk than the paper. So, I turned the negative (silhouette) image into a positive! Just like all our ND friends are trying to do with their crazy weather and flooding. Praying for you all!

I also stamped Dazzling Departure butterfly from Butterfly Beauty (Unity) with Ranger Ink Dusty Concord distressing ink on Shrinky Dink plastic. I carefully rolled it as it was cooling to get the effects of a real butterfly. The rest is just paper trimming (SU! PP, Bazzill CS), adding embellishments (MM brads, Offray ribbon) and gluing down.

I hope you've enjoyed peeking into my world. I will see you soon!

Peace be the journey - cool runnings.

Ta for now, ~ky
