Growing in Unity day 5

Hello my friends. I can't believe how fast this week went by. I hope you have enjoyed my cards as much as I enjoyed making them.

I'm back to flowers today. They probably win as as my favorites to color at the very least.

I am sorry I don't have the marker colors I used for this one. I remember that they were an unusual combo for me but I don't have the picture of them so I can list them out. This beautiful flower is a fairly new set called Peony Hugs. I masked it off and blended Distress Oxide in Hickory Smoke around it. Then I laid a Hero Arts stencil over it and blended the same color through the stencil. I smudged the edges with a little bit of Black Soot and matted the whole thing on black card stock. The sentiment is from the same kit and has a little bit of Hickory Smoke ink blended over it as well.

Be sure to leave comments. I will choose the winners on Monday and post them to the Unity Facebook pages. Both the Show & Tell page and the Growing in Unity page. If you are picked, please be sure to contact me right away so I can get your information to Unity.

Thanks for joining me this week. I hope you are all staying well and safe and sane. Hugs.

Growing in Unity day 4

Hello everyone. It's day four of my Growing in Unity week. Boy time is flying by this week. I have a hard time deciding whether flowers or people are my favorite Unity stamps. Today, I'm bringing you two cards with a couple of my favorite girls.

This lovely lady comes from the set Hello, Sunshine Girl. I love her outfit. I colored her skirt with Copic markers in B21, B23 and B24. Her shirt and scarf are Y02, Y00, the bag is E30 & E33. I blended Distress Oxide in squeezed lemonade and trimmed it down 1/4" on the top and one side. I had fussy cut the girl out because I was going to do something else, so I stamped her on my white panel and trimmed it down the glued the colored one one top. The lace on the edge is a Sizzix die. The sentiment is from the same kit and I inked the edges with squeezed lemonade also.

This girl is from the kit called Pretty Girl Smile. She is wonderful don't you think? I believe I used B91, B93 and B97 for her outfit. But I had a mishap with my phone and it got eaten alive by sea water so I lost a few pictures, including the one of the markers I used to color her. I stamped the new background A Faithful Letter and cut it down with a die. I stamped the background stamp Just a Little Clicky and cut it down to make a strip which was matted on black. The girl was die cut with a smaller wavy die as well.

I hope you enjoyed today's cards. Be sure to keep commenting for your chance to win 1 of 2 Unity prizes.
