Unity Color Challenge

Ok, so I missed the deadline to enter but honestly, I'm just happy to be creating again.

Unity Stamp Company posted this pretty free digi to use in their coloring contest. Of course I went with purples (I'm a purple freak in case you didn't know) and colored using Prisma pencils. Then the image sat for a couple of days. I came across a 6x6 stack at Michael's called Violet Leaf by DCWV. I had just cleaned them out of their purples and teals in cardstock so I knew I had to have this pack. And to my surprise as I was flipping through the stack I noticed some papers that worked well with my colors. Funny sometimes how things come together. I printed 2 images and fussy cut around the flowers and leaves that were colored, then "popped" them onto the black and white image. I added just a bit of color around the flowers for depth. The butterfly is Recollections, Michaels had a bunch of different packs on clearance for $1, love when I find things I love on clearance!

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope I've inspired you in some way, as I was inspired by all of the amazing projects submitted at Unity. And some Pinterest inspiration for the design. :)
