Unity Stamp Company February Challenge

While I LOVE Close To My Heart stamps a very close fav is Unity Company Stamps. I adore all the fun stamps they have. For the month of February they have this really cool challenge I decided to enter.

Here is the color palette for this challenge. They also have a scrapbook layout and a card sketch but I figured I wanted to play with my CTMH Artiste cart so I am using the colors in my project. 


 Below is my project. When I looked at the above picture I kept thinking of butterflies in the sky. I used my CTMH Artiste cart to cut out this cool bag. I also cut out the cloud and inked the edges in Lagoon to give it that light turquoise color in the palette. I used the Unity "You GIve Me Tiny Butterflies" stamp set. I stamped the hearts and butterfly and colored them red, turquoise and yellow using CTMH watercolor pencils. I stamped two of the butterflies and also colored them with the watercolor pencils. I stamped the sentiment "You Give Me Butterflies". I made the clouds and butterflies dimensional using pop dots. To finish it up I used a velcro fastener under the flap. Great gift idea to show someone how special they are. 

Here is another look at my project from the side so you can see the dimension the pop dots provide.
