My Hearts Pleasure

Adventure Begins

48 Comments

Good morning! Today is my fourth day in my Growing In Unity week. I have had so much fun creating with Unity stamps this week. So here is my card for today 


I started with a Basic Black card base followed with a layer of kraft that I distressed the edges with Vintage Photo ink. For the main layer I started with a Whisper White piece of cardstock and first stamped the splattered bullseye, from the Unity set Let Adventure, in versamark and after that dried I sponged the background using distress inks Mermaid Lagoon, Mustard Seed, Peeled Paint and Spiced Marmalade. Next using the same stamp set I stamped the corners and the sentiment using Stazon black ink. To finish I stamped the butterfly on white cardstock and colored using my distress markers and then fussy cut it and curled the wings to give dimension and adhered to the card front only glueing down the body. 

Here is a link to the stamp set I used  https://www.unitystampco.com/shop/let-adventure/

Thank you so much for stopping by today!

Until next time

Happy Crafting 🙂
