Growing in Unity Day one

Welcome Unity friends....I am so excited to be sharing with you again this year creations I have made using images from Unity Stamp Company!!!



Today I thought it would be fun to share with you how you can use some packaged cards and add some stamping to them to create unique one of a kind greetings.

I picked up these two different font style thank you cards from Michael's around the end of the year.  The paper is very gritty like a watercolor paper, so they were perfect for this project.  Here is what they looked like beforehand:




I then stamped this bird from the Love the Little Things KOTM June 2013 in Stazon ink onto each card.


I then colored the image with  Derwent Inktense Pencils and used a waterbrush to move the colors around and blend them to create the background. I love how these pencils allow you to create fun and unique backgrounds so easily.



I hope this project has you looking at packaged plain cards a bit differently from here on.  It really is a fun way to create unique one of a kind greetings!

Until tomorrow...have an awesome day!!!

Happy crafting....Lynda

I do this sometimes also, picking up a plain card that I will further decorate to finish. Love this sweet bird you used from the KOTM!

So pretty! I'm glad you used a past KOTM to create your cards. It's nice to have inspiration with what we already have.

Oh how cute!! I have this kit and love it!! I was lucky
enough to get it on sale as I can't afford membership. I use
this one all the time.
