Hello, hello & hello

I went very simple and clean today.
 
 
I used Unity's Quiet Essence (the flower and grid background) and May 2012 (sentiment banner) KOM stamp sets. This is for the Unity monthly challenge to use pennants and/or banners.

 
I'm also entering this into the 10-Minute Craft Dash challenge. We had to use these colors:
 My time was about 8 minutes, give or take a few seconds.
My colors are more vivid in person, it's just dark right now and the flash on the camera washed the colors out.
 
 
I'm also entering this into Young Crafters Unite Challenge #14 which is to use a technique you've recently learned or is your favorite.
This is my first project using alcohol markers. I tried it once before and well... it was messy! I finally tried again and it is not so scary after all! The flower is a lot more blended in person. The flash just makes the whole photo look kinda harsh. Sorry!
 
 
Thanks for stopping by!


Supplies:
Unity Quiet Essence and May 2012 KOM stamps
