Friends of Unity~ March 2021


Hey there!! 
Welcome to Robyn's Nest!!!
WOW!! Where did February go??
Now it's already March 6th and time again for our once a month hop!!

Have you ever won one of our giveaways?? If so, we'd love for you to share with everyone!! Thanks for your support!! 
Ok onto this hop!!
We have a sketch challenge this month!! 
Here's how I was inspired.....

I stamped out the image a few weeks ago from the January KOM from 2020
 and decided to use her today for this sketch...
I colored her with a few Copic Markers 
BG 10-11-13
Y-000 for her eyes and glasses
E 21-37-18 for her hair in strokes, then I went over the entire thing with the Y00
I zoomed in a little..I used a white gel pen to highlight the top


        I got out my gold thread from Stampin' Up and tied a bow around her finger where the stamped line is (it looks cute in person)
From the kit In God's Sight, I chose the line of hearts.
 I stamped them on vellum and heat embossed them with gold.
 I fussy cut them out, then I wanted them to hang loosely.
 So I got to thinking, I have this punch that pokes 2 holes. I can thread more of that gold thread through it 
I like how it turned out. I added some gold shimmer hearts here and there.
I decided that she was thinking about her man with her head in the you like that?? 
I added a gold cloud in back to tie them together.. 
I chose to use this shiny gold paper because of the tiny gold dots in this amazing paper from Lawn Fawn.
For my next card, I chose this sweet little cup. 
I just love the heart steam!! 
A tiny bit of coloring went into this card. 
If you have any questions, please ask.
 I don't want to get too wordy. 😉 
I hope you like my play on this months cue/sketch

  16. Both of your cards are wonderful! I think that's the beauty of a sketch.

  17. What a fun and unique design with your first card. The little details like embossing, vellum, fancy eye shadow and that gold bow on her this!! I always enjoy the hop because I get to see so many different stamps and styles, and it always inspires me.

  21. Oh my goodnes this hop was super fun! Boy I was so late to find some reading time here (which kept all of the FOU in my heart all month) and am thrilled to finally sit down and really enjoy all of these lovely cards and all the details! Love reading every word! (Especially the times my name appeared as a winner... still happy dancing! ) I really love the vellum additions on your cards... I must do the string of hearts. The cup card is filled with little fun touches, the bling looks like steam, super cute! Life happens and I'm so glad I got the time to see all the wonderful inspiration! Thanks and (((hugs)))
