Hip Hop Hangover!


Good morning and welcome to my Hip Hop Hangover creation! :D I made this card for yesterday's challenge which was to create a black and white background! I took the swirly stamp from the Bevy of Butterflies kit and stamped it all over the piece of whisper white card stock. I then layered that piece on my black card base. The dragon fly was then stamped with stazon and I colored in the wings with my colored pencils and gamsol. For a prettier look I then added glitter to the body, wings, and antenna of it. I used some bermuda bay and melon mambo to balance out the color scheme too! I punched out the sentiment (also from Bevy of Butteflies) and popped it up with dimensionals after coloring it in. The last thing I did was add rhinestones and ribbon pieces to embellish the card!

Now for the news! Remember when I said I was taking a chance by trying out for the Unity Guest Designer challenge with this card? Well, yesterday I found out that they picked ME! I was blown away! I did not think I stood a chance among all the fabulous creations that had been submitted! Wowza was I excited though! :D My term will be for August and I am so thrilled!

I hope you all enjoy your Friday! I plan on getting a lot done today! :D
