Hello Sunshine

Happy Monday Scrappy Peeps!
I have a quick post today showcasing the June Kit from Hip 2-b Square.
This card uses NO pattern paper at all - only cardstock and embellishments.
Since Kimbery's kits are always chock-full of little extras, there are always PLENTY of embellies to use up on cards after I am done my LOs.
 
**All products are June kit + Add-ons from Hip 2-b Square,
with the exception of embossing folder (*Stampin' Up! & Mister Huey's from a
previous kit)

 
For this page, I was inspired by a project I saw on Pinterest (see link below) using the same stencil but not the mist I used on my previous attempts. I used water colour pencils and was floored by the effect. I then added a bit of stitching and outlined a few of my shapes with the pencils again when my watercolour dried. I next stamped butterflies on top of my circles - and the result was less than spectacular, so I set to stamping the images again on plain white cardstock, fussy cut them out and adhered them on top of my 'hot-mess stamping' with foam dots. LOVE this technique much more.

**All products are June kit + Add-ons from Hip 2-b Square,
with the exception of  water colour pencils(*Kimberly brand), buttons (from my stash)
& Studio Calico mask/Misters (all from previous Hip kits)

**This project was inspired by a page from Agomalley on 2Peas.
