Unity Blog Hop April 12-2018

WOW! April already!  I've been gone for about 3 weeks and haven't made a thing for over a month.  I was so excited to get home last week and see the new releases coordinating with this hop.
 
I've had a bit of time to play and have some inspiration for YOU.

I've made up two of the new Cuddlebugs from artist Tierra Jackson.
 
This first one is the Platypus.  I colored this image with distress markers and added a little cardstock paper clip from Michael's.  I mounted the image with foam tape on my patterned paper background.
 
 

 
My second one is the Sea Horse.  I punched the right edge of the bottom piece with a Fiskar's border punch and smooshed a bunch of green and blue distress ink on it.  The image is colored with Gelatos using water and a paint brush.  I assembled the card and added 3 copper sequins.




  
I hope you've enjoyed my little bit of inspiration and now it's time to journey on and leave all the design team members participating today a little bit of love and encouragement.

You should have arrived here from Kary's blog and now it's time to move on to Lisa.
 
Just don't forget what we always say...HOP, then SHOP!
 
Have a fabulous week.
