Unity guest for today's blog hop

 I am so excited and more than a little nervous.  I was asked to be  guest for today's challenge hop at the Unity Blog.  (Since I have not had this experience, I will probably have to make some corrections - please be patient with me.)  My excitement began when I was a big winner for their challenge a few weeks ago.  If you look at some of my previous posts, you will see that I have made good use of several items, especially the Christmas set.
I made two cards using the sketch for this week.
Card details:  Unity sentiment from Favorite Sentiment set.
Washi tape Cuttlebug Textile embossing and border die;Cheery Lynn butterfly die; Stardream metallic Neptune - emerald - cs - another prize, and it is available at Classy Cards 'n Such.  Details of the splatter technique will follow. 
This card also uses the emerald cs available at Classy Cards 'n Such; Cuttlebug border embossing folder, ribbon and sequins from my stash; sentiment from Unity.
To create the splatters I used reinker (Tsukinecko), mixed with a bit of water.  I dipped a toothbrush in it, and alternately tapped, shook, and plunked to get the result.  For the first card I used the metallic teal ink for a shimmery look.  To create the bg for the second card I used a plastic stencil to get the somewhat more even pattern, and added a bit of DP for the bottom panel.

The sketch is from the Unity blog.
