Blog hop.

This summer has been flying by, hard to believe it’s almost the end of July. I enjoyed being a GIU artist in June and I am so excited to share these next two cards for this blog hop

I used Special Wishes stamp set for the top card, using Fun Stampers Journey ink and then accent paper to finish off the shabby chic card.

For the card below I used Panda Bundle Pack stamping on whip cream paper and then mounting it on a sheet of accent paper, adding twine and rhinestone to finish off this card.

Unitygirl_2017_1

On this card I used the : Other Side Of Fear stamp set.

I stamped him on FSJ whip cream paper using Black Licorice ink then colored him with Color Splash Pencils using gray for his body and then a pink for the flowers. He is layered with some accent paper then I added some twine and a charm. I added some ink to the edge of the base to give it a watery feel.

Please comment and come back tomorrow.

 

GIU day #3

For today’s card I used …..Snail Mail stamp set.

On the card I used Tim Holtz distress inks to create the background. Blending Festive Berries, Fossilized Amber, and Peacock Feathers with round daubers to get this fun psychedelic look. I added a few embossed dots for a little texture. Then I stamped the snail and mushroom with Black Licorice Ink on whip cream paper. I then colored them  using Color Burst Pencils.

Unitygirl_2017_2I think this card is in a close second for my favorite card I created for this week. I hope you love it as much as I do. Please come back and leave a comment to be entered into the drawing.

Day #2 GIU

For today’s card I used …….There Is You stamp by Phyllis Harris.

For this Card I stamped the image with Black Licorice ink on water color paper. I  colored the image with Tim Holtz Distress Crayons then added it to the card base which is whip cream paper with a piece of Beach Ball paper for the second layer. For a little sparkle and shine I add the Rainbow drops to finish off this card.

I love the dreamy washed out looking effect the crayons have when you blend them with a baby wipe.
