GIU - Day 5

Happy Friday.!!!!

I am sad to say that today is my last post For Growing In Unity.  I have had so much fun sharing my projects with you.  Everyone has left such wonderful comments.  I am very encouraged by all of your kind words.

I will be choosing the winner of the Itty Bitty Stamps on Monday.  So, that give everyone through the weekend to leave a comment.

I also want to send out a big Thank You to the Unity Stamp Company for their generosity.

Today's project I made using a leaf stamp I received in a grab bag.   I found that it is part for the Color of the Seasons KOM set.  I first and embossed the leaves in white on watercolor paper. I used my twinkling H2O's to create this background.  The technique I used was to wet the H2O heavily and also wet the paper.  That way I could move the color around as I desired.  Then I heat dried the color into place.   Since the paper was very wet and was warped I found I needed to iron the paper flat.  I Then distressed the edges and sewed it onto the purple paper.  I added some stickles to the circles in the leaves.  Finishing it off with the sentiment and sequins.



Hope you enjoyed all of the projects.  Next week there will be another GIU gal.  Check out the Unity blog on Wednesday to see who will inspire you next.



Thank you again and have a wonderful weekend.

  19. This card is so fabulous! I really love all of the techniques you incorporated and those leaves are my favorite aspect. So clever! I also think the distressed edge and stitching details are brilliant. I love the sentiment and the watercolored background. It sounds like it was a lot of work with the warped paper and all, but it was worth every effort because it turned out beautifully! Thank you for sharing your talents with us here at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog!
