I was lucky enough to be a Growing In Unity Girl in July 2017. So now we are having our blog hop and I am just as excited to be a part of this. You should have arrived from Janet’s blog, and there is a list below of all the great blogs in this hop.
Since we are also in the midst of The Daily Marker 30 Day Color Challenge, I decided to use a Unity stamp that I water colored using some of the Daniel Smith watercolor dot sheets. I really love the sentiment on this card too. Both these stamps are from the January 2017 Kit of the Month called “When You Smile“. That was the kit I received for being a Growing In Unity Girl. This set was from before I signed up, and I like so many of the stamps in the set. The main focal design was stamped in Archival Ink because I was going to use watercolors. Once I finished the coloring, I went around the outside with a light blue Zig Brush Marker, and spread that ink using a Wink of Stella Brush. Such a pretty shimmer. The sentiment was first stamped in Versafine black, using a post it over the heart piece. Then I stamped the heart alone using GinaKDesigns Red Velvet ink, using another post it to cover the words. The sparkly little bling is petite posies from Queen and Company.
Remember to leave a comment, as 2 commentators from the hop will win some Unity stamps.
Oh, and I can never leave without one extra card. As I was putting stuff away the name of the April 2017 KOTM caught my eye. Be My Bird. Could not get out of my head that there was a perfect stamp for that. Found it in the May 2017 KOTM Free Your Dreams set.
That bird on the right always struck me as a bit of a pushy bird. So this card just had to be made.
