Growing In Unity Day Three

Welcome to Day three in my week as the Growing In Unity Guest Designer!!!  I am so happy you have stopped by!  And a special thank you to everyone that has dropped by my blog this week!

Well if you have been stopping by on prior two days you may have picked up on a theme for my cards this week... the Wildflowers & Wings Smak 4/14 kit.  When I was a Growing In Unity gal last year I showcased all five projects using the same paper from the same pad, so I thought this year I would make all my projects using the same stamp set.

For this card I used two images from the kit.  I used Stazon ink to stamp the image onto Strathmore watercolor paper.  I then used Derwent Inktense pencils to color in the image.  I then washed the background with a few of the pencils.  I then scraped the image with my scissor edge to create this rough and uneven look.  I kept it simple and mounted it onto the single cardbase.

See you tomorrow...
Happy crafting...Lynda

I just love your cute, colorful style with the penciled backgrounds and these bold stamps. They would make the most cheery note card set to give as a gift...or just spread happiness through the mail!
