Growing In Unity Day Two

Welcome back.  If you didn't drop by my blog yesterday pop back over and take a peek at what I shared on this post.  Thank you so much to everyone that did drop by yesterday!!

Today I'm using a different image from the same stamp kit as yesterday; Wildflowers and Wings SMAK kit 4/14.  I stamped this flower image onto Strathmore Watercolor cold press 140 lb paper using Stazon ink.  I then ran the paper through my printer and added the sentiment.  I then set the sentiment using my heat tool.  I then used my Derwent Inktense pencils to color the image.

I LOVE how vibrant these colors can be.  I created this color blocked looking background by simply scribbling three colors in random squares behind the flower.




Once the image was dry I backed it onto a piece of pattern paper that had this fun grid design and then onto a blue cardbase that I cut specific for this tall card.

I hope you will come back each day this week to see what I have created for you using these wonderful stamps from Unity!

Be sure to leave a comment as two lucky commenters from this week will win a wonderful prize from Unity!

Until tomorrow...
Happy crafting....Lynda

I love the color-blocked background. I haven't been brave enough to send my watercolor paper through the printer for a greeting. I might have to give it a whirl. Happy Tuesday!
