Growing in Unity: Day 3
Another day, another card!
I decided to change it up a little with these cards. I've had this set for awhile now and I got it because of its layering potential! I'm also Lisa Arana's (artist) biggest fan! This set comes with quite a few sentiments - another reason to love Unity designs. They give you plenty of sentiment options to take a stamp set and create a whole bunch of cards with it! That's pretty much what I did here...
I created this cards using Unity: ...Smile, it's your day.
I sometimes find choosing colours quite challenging, so to help inspire me I did a quick Pinterest search for spring palette. I picked a few ink colours (Altenew inks) and started stamping away! I used my MISTI to assist in the stamp process and will admit that it is more challenging to layer a rubber stamp then a clear stamp - but I wasn't aiming for perfection! I first stamped my based colours and went over them with the outline stamp and didn't mind if they didn't line up perfectly...
I had a bit of time when I was creating this card and was lucky enough to create another two more cards. So I decided to play around with colours - introducing shades of grey into the ink mix and came up with the card below.
The final card I decided to use the flower in the set that I hadn't used for the first two cards.
All cards have a masking element in them - once I decided where my sentiment would go I masked that small area off with masking paper. I wanted these to be single layer cards because I knew I would machine sew a border around the sentiments. I also outlined the flowers/leaves with a glitter pen to add another element to the card and finished each card of with a few My Little Paper World sequins.
Thanks so much for stopping by! I'm loving the comments and positive feedback so far...keep them coming! At the end of my GIU week 2 lucky winners will be drawn to win a grab bag prize pack!
