Growing In Unity Blog Hop



Good Morning.

Hope you are enjoying you weekend.


Today I am participating in the Growing In Unity Blog Hop.

I am the last stop.  If you just arrive head on over to the Unity blog to get started 

The set I chose to work with is the Unity was She Found Joy Kit of the Month 

I have been playing with Ken Oliver's Color Burst.

I found a technique where I use the Color Burst mixed with blending gel on watercolor paper.

I first created the background using Yellow and Ocher color burst.  The Ocher is cool because it leaves orange and green color streaks behind.  

After the paper dried, I then stamped the background 
image using a brown pigmented in and clear embossed.  






The poppies were stamped and gold embossed on Watercolor paper.   

I used the same technique to color the poppies using red and orange Color Burst.  

The center of the poppies are black distress glitter.  

I popped them off the background to give the card some dimension 

Be sure to leave comments along the way.
Two lucky people will be winning some Unity 

Here is today's line up.







I will be entering this card in the following challenges
