Growing in Unity, Day 3 -- Trying Something New!

Looking for the Timeless Twine Simply White Blog Hop? Click HERE!

Hello, sweet friends, and thanks for visiting today.  If this is your first day here, don't forget to go back and leave comments on the other Growing In Unity posts for a chance to win 2 free Itty Bitties from Unity Stamp Company.  Isn't that awesome?!?
Today, I wanted to try something I hadn't tried before, so I got out my Tim Holtz Distress Markers.  I have 12 of them -- just got them -- and hadn't had a chance to use them.  Here's what I did with them for my first attempt at distress markers...


I used an Itty Bitty Stamp of the Week on this, "Beautiful You". Designer papers are My Mind's Eye, Follow Your Heart, Be Amazing 6x6 pad.  
Here's a close up of the butterflies and twine:


I used two colors of Timeless Twine on this card -- Lemonade Yellow and Aqua Blue.
I hope to see you again tomorrow for day 4 of Growing In Unity.
