Growing in Unity 2018 - Day 5

Happy Friday!!

Sadly this means my week with the Unity Stamp Company is coming to an end.

I would like to thank everyone for all of your kind and inspiring comments. 


A big thanks to Unity for this opportunity.

I also enjoyed the answers to some of my questions.   
I discovered that I am not the only obsessed with a certain type of image.   
Thank your for sharing.

I hope you had time to check out the 
Unity web site, their blog and even the Facebook page.
They are wonderful people and the stamps are awesome.
and they have a great sale going on right now. 

I have two cards for my final post today. 

I beleive that I am getting into a rhythm and my mojo is coming back.

The window image I chose is from the A Summer Story Kit of the Month

 Both cards I stamped and colored the image with alcohol inks.  
One with red flowers and the other with purple flowers.

Then using my Misti stamp tool I stamped this sentiment in the window.
One in black and the other in white.
Both are heat embossed.

I'm not sure what set this sentiment came from so I can't leave you a link.

It is such a happy and welcoming sentiment. 
Could be good for birthdays or think of you.

I thought the images were a little flat and wanted to give them a some extra dimension.  

For the red flowers I stamped another image.  
I colored the window box and  flowers just like before.
Then I cut that part of the image and placed it over the 
original with some pop dots to pop it off the image.

For the purple flowers I added a layer of glitter around the edges.

Both sets of flower I used my new..... 
Nuvo enamel dots for the flower centers.

I added a drop to the top of the window and some around the purple flower box.

This is the first time I used the enamel dots and I love them. 

I was actually surprised how much dimension the 
purple flowers had after the touch of glitter and the enamel dots.

Hope you enjoyed my week of projects and found something that inspired you.

Remember there is two prized to be won.
