Growing in Unity Day Three


Happy Wednesday 
I can't believe that it  is the halfway mark for my time with Unity Stamp Company. 
Time always flies when you are doing something fun.

For my project today I choose one of my favorite Angie Girls ...
She is gorgeous.   

Yesterday I mentioned that I am a sucker for flowers. 
And yes, this awesome stamp has a flower...LOL

I used watercolor paper to stamp the image.  
I then colored everything using my distress markers as watercolor.  
I did this by applying some ink onto a acrylic block and 
then picked the ink up using a water brush.  

I then tore the edge and paired it with a piece of fun patterned paper.  

The sentiment is also part of the set.  

I don't usually make tall cards because it is easier to make standard A2 card size. 

 It is easier to find nice A2 envelopes and one piece of card stock makes 2 cards.

However I did find some nice large envelopes
 and am excited to be able to make some different size cards.  

This image works well on the tall card.  The overall size is 4" wide by 7.75" tall.

  14. Love this! I have loved this stamp since I first found it on Unity, but have yet to buy it (why? I don't know.) I love your coloring. Did you also do the background this way, or is it just the way your lighting is? I have such a hard time with the waterbrush. Guess I need to practice more!

  24. I would never be brave enough to tear the cardstock AFTER I had already colored the image....I would prob tear right through the image!! EEEK! :) Love this tall format card with this wonderful image. Beautiful work.
