This month Gerda provided us with this adorable Daschund digital image to create with. I printed the image off on Strathmore 140lb. watercolor paper. The card panel was cut with the largest stitched rectangle from Lawn Fawn. I then used my distress markers and ink pads to color the image and background. I love how the sky turned out. It really looks like clouds floating through the air! I was disappointed in the color of the heart balloon because it was supposed to be purple and ended up looking like pink. Oh well – still super cute! I used the clear Wink of Stella marker to add glitter to the heart balloon and then covered it in Glossy Accents. I also added glossy accents to the dog’s nose. I also stamped the sentiment using Violet’s ABCs from Lawn Fawn and Versafine Black Onyx ink.
Thanks Gerda for another great digital image!
My second card uses Mittens, Cocoa and Hearts from Unity Stamp Company. I used a piece of patterned paper from the Simon Says Stamp Company January card kit/Bo Bunny paper collection included in the kit. I used some sparkling H2O water colors (which the camera does not do the colors justice) and my Kuretake watercolors. I tied a piece of light blue twine around the front of the card and popped up the focal image with some 3M foam tape.
I have created two cards for the Monthly Unity Be Inspired Challenge. I am super excited about this month’s challenge because it requires some of my favorite colors. I also just received two stamps from Unity. Great quality, great customer service. Can’t wait to get more products from Unity. My oldest daughter and I also would like to visit New London sometime soon and maybe they will let us come tour their company:)
My first card uses Beautiful Soul by Unity. I used Strathmore watercolor paper (140 lb.) and Kuretake watercolor (24 color set). I added various gemstones to the left side of the card from Recollections.
