appreciate the beauty...

Day 2 of my Growing in Unity

First I'd like to show you a creation that I made...a 'Magic Card'!

Okay, so have you ever seen the tutorial that Beate has on SCS? 
You make a card with an image that is stamped in black with no color...
then, you pull up the card and the magic of color appears!

At first glance, there is no color on the tree image
(but I had to paste that cute little owl there).
The tree and sentiment are from Unity's KOM {delightful moments}, Dec 2009.
From Unity and {ippity} Projects

Pulling up the card is revealing a polka dot background
and the paper pieced leaves
(the leaves show lots of color in person...and that Staz-on ink is really coming out dark on that acetate....hmmm, must be the photographer!heehee):
From Unity and {ippity} Projects

Now the magic appears and there is color!
(Looks more colorful in person, trust me.)

So what do you think?  Have you ever made one of these?
You could also write a message on the blank space to appear when you pull up the card!

Click HERE to find the instructions to Beate's Magic Card...
they are fun and her tutorial is step by step!

Okay, drum roll
for the winner of

{ippity} Kissmas & Mistletoe
