Fun with Unity & Tim Holtz

That's right I used ALL Unity Stamps along with Tim Holtz 12 Tags of Christmas from last year, Tag #3 along with the Unity Sketch Challenge for this Growing In Unity Gal creation - I LOVE it & hope you do too

The first stamp set I used is the three butterflies from Happy which is an Ippity set. To make the butterflies there but just a hint, first I stamped them with TH Picket Fence, then I rubbed stickles on the stamp & stamped it again in about the same location.

The main stamp set I used is Imagine It for the sentiment & the shrub on the tag.

The bird - cut on my cricut using the CTMH Art Philosophy Cartridge & was cut out of TH Swirls Grungeboard using the technique from the Tag #3 video along with the same tape Tim used. But I didn't have purple Alcohol Ink so instead I used TH Color Wash in Purple Twilight.
