Hi everyone! I am so excited to be part of this Growing In Unity Blog Hop! You should have just come from Karen Nofziger's blog, but if you are just stopping by, you can see a list of all the stops at the bottom of my post. For the hop today, we were all sent a Unity Stamp Co. stamp from the Phyllis Harris line - which I admit I squealed a bit when I opened the package because this line is one of my all time favorites! I know you have enjoyed the hop so far so I will get right to my card now.
The stamp I received is called too beautiful for earth and I have had this on my wish list forever! I think it is such a sweet image and I knew I was going to pull out my Peerless watercolors for this card. There are three sweet sentiments that come in this stamp set and they are all meant to lift up someone who has experienced a loss. It is always hardest for me to create sympathy cards and I think this stamp set is one to have in your collection just for those moments in life.
Here is a close up of the coloring. I did a wash watercolor so it would appear very loose and flowing. I also added some clear Wink of Stella to her wings and the butterflies. After everything was dry I added a little splatter of color for some more texture. This is a one layer card and I just popped up the watercolor panel on some foam tape to my card base.
Here is the list of everyone participating today! Be sure to check out all the posts and stop by the Unity Stamp Co Blog as there is a giveaway as well!
