Hi everyone! I am so excited to be your Growing In Unity gal this week! The last time I did this was in 2011 and I am STOKED I was able to get in this year when sign ups occurred. It was totally meant to be, too, because the fates aligned and I'm showcasing during my birthday week which is this Friday! Be sure to leave comments on my GIU posts each day this week because at the end of this fun week, I get to choose TWO of you to win an awesome grab bag of 25 Unity Stamps!
For my card, I used the set Blossom by Blossom. This set is so beautiful - I love all the different sentiments and this beautiful flower image. I used Faber-Castell gelatos to apply color to the flowers and then spritzed with some water before stamping in a random pattern on the front of the watercolor card. After that I took a wet paint brush to blend the colors. Once it was dry, I stamped my sentiment in Tsukineko Versafine Onyx Black. Some twine, sequins and wood veneer finished off this simple card. You could easily make a lot of these with the different sentiments in the set and different colors of gelatos for a great gift set.
I hope you've enjoyed my card and be sure to stop by tomorrow for more GIU loveliness as well as another chance to comment for your chance to win!
