Growing In Unity Day Four

Welcome to day four in my week as the Growing In Unity Guest Designer!  I am so thankful for the opportunity to share my love of Unity with you and for each one of you that has dropped in to take a peek this week!  I am having the BEST time and so appreciate all the sweet comments.


Edited...I realized this stamp is not from the same SMAK kit...this flower is from the No Clue How Beautiful SMAK 9/15 set...so tomorrow I will for sure have to share two from the other set...sorry for the confusion...I had images stamped ahead and had this one in the wrong bag...  For today's card I am using the Wildflowers & Wings SMAK 4/14 stamp set again.  This time I picked the floral grouping and stamped the image using Stazon ink onto Strathmore watercolor paper.  I colored the image using Derwent Inktense Pencils.  I used my waterbrush to saturate the edges around the image and tore it from the page for a fun distressed look.  I then use the brush to pencil technique to put the darker intense color around the torn edge of the image.



I really like how fun these pencils are to watercolor with. 

I had someone ask me why I was focusing on just one stamp kit.  For me I like to see what all can be done with one kit and decided to challenge myself to see if I could create different  unique looks using the same stamp set and medium this week. 

So there is one more day after today....
 
So, if you missed either of my other posts from this week you can find them here:
 
 
 
 
 
Wednesday's project:   

I hope you will drop by again tomorrow to see what my final project is.  Also, be sure to leave a comment along the postings this week since I get to pick two winners that will each receive an awesome prize from Unity!!

Hope to see you tomorrow...
Happy crafting....Lynda
