Unity Stamp Co GIU Blog Hop

41 Comments

Good morning! Today I am part of a blog hop for Unity Stamp Co as a Growing In Unity girl. I am the first stop followed by some amazing ladies. Be sure to stop by everyone’s blog and comment on their posts to be eligible to win a prize package from Unity Stamp Co!

Here is the card I created 

I started with a SU Wild Wasabi card base and then added a layer of Basic Black. For the main layer I used a piece of watercolor cardstock. I stamped the flower from the Unity set Blow Your Mind using Stazon jet black ink. After that dried I watercolored the flower using Tim Holtz Distress Inks Abandoned Coral, Dried Marigold and Squeezed Lemonade. After that dried I used my clear Wink Of Stella pen and highlighted the center of the flower.  I used Fossilized Amber to create shadows around the flower. Next I used a paint brush and watered down Vintage Photo and flicked the splatters and then using a sponge distressed the edges with Vintage Photo.   I took twine and made the loops and attached at the flower stem base. To finish I stamped the sentiment from the Unity set Poppy Girl on white cardstock and then fussy Cut and distressed the edges in Vintage Photo and added on top the twine using dimensionals. 

Here is the lineup for the Blog Hop.  You can click on each name to be taken to their blog
