Put Your Brave Girl Boots On!

It's Hip Hop Thursday!!!
How are all my Unity Stamp Co. Peeps?!?

Do you all have your Brave Girl Boots on? Don't know what I am talking about? Then you have to go check out the Brave Girl Boots link. I just got this new kit in this week and am IN LOVE with this stamp kit! I am sure that it helps that I now live in Texas! 

I have been dying to make one of these banners and when I saw this new stamp set, a plan was set in motion for a bit of new artwork to hang in my stamp room....

This piece is big...9x12 for the main piece, not counting any of the bead fringe or hanging parts.

The tag above is a normal shipping tag simply dyed with Glimmer Mist (maybe verdigris? I'd have to check the actual color... I dyed the tag a LONG time ago...LOL!) 

There is a lot going on in this collage and I pulled out one of my favorite Unity butterflies ever....the one from the July Store kit of the month...simply colored with watercolor pencils and pearls for the body.

Like I said, a LOT going on, including lots of little words/phrases put on there to encourage me to stay brave.

Supplies used:
*Unity Stamp Co. Brave Girl Boots
*Unity Stamp Co. July Store kit
*Cosmo Cricket paper
*shipping tags
*MM mini alpha stickers
*Palette burnt umber ink pad
*Fiskars border punch
*Heidi Swapp chipboard clocks
*Jenni Bowlin buttons, bingo card, and star journaling piece
*bead fringe
*lace trim
*Glimmer Mist
*Tim Holtz ticket
*Flat Backed pearls
