i {heart} hip hop!

Happy Hip Hop Thursday, chickies! If you are just joining us, hop on over to the Unity blog to get started at the begining!!!!
I thought I would share a little Valentines love today, on this lovely Hip Hop Day . . .both of these cards were made with Unity's January kit of the month. If you missed out, and you haven't joined the kit club, have no fear. . .. this set will be available on the website in March. So, hang in there!! This first card had a problem. . . .so I had to work it a little bit. The red ink that I used, once dry, was not quite dark enough for the words and swirls on the red cardstock. My remedy? Trace over it with a darker red colored pencil. Still not quite as dark as I had wanted, but I rolled with it. (Sometimes, ya just gotta do that!!)
And this card, is just a quick little Scrapling. . .a card I made with SCRAPS. (And a much darker ink color, after learning from my mistake!!)
You've almost made it to the end of the Hop!
And be sure to join us in the Unity forum at SCS for lots of chatting, giveaways, and fun!!
Have a wonderful day!! XOXO

It's not a mistake, it's a design feature. I think the subtlety works, even it it wasn't quite what you had in mind. I adore the scrapling, too.
