Growing in Unity Gal - Day 2!


Hi everyone! I'm back with Day 2 of my Growing In Unity week. I love pulling out watercolors when I'm inking up my Unity Stamps. Today I'm using the stamp Missing You Girl. I love all the Angie Girl stamps!!! I have so many watercolors but right now I'm enjoying playing with my Jane Davenport watercolors. They are perfect because the neutral palette has the perfect skin tones and the brights has all my favorite purples, pinks and turquoise! They are small and easy for on the go, too. 


To go with the sentiment, I added Dina Wakley Media Heavy Body paint in Rosy to the card base because I love the beautiful rose gold shimmery color. I also added clear Spectrum Noir glitter pen to the hair on my girl because that color has to shine! A few sequins and this card is good to go. I feel like a little mixed media and a little watercolor will be the theme this week! Hope you like it! 

Be sure to comment on my blog posts each day this week for your chance to win an awesome Unity Stamp Co prize pack! I'll be choosing ONE winner from all the comments left each day at the end of the week (winner to be announced Monday, April 24). Also, be sure to check out Terri's Blog, our other Growing In Unity Gal this week - she's a newbie so be sure to leave her lots of love this week as well because you have a second chance to win over there.

Love this. I like how your watercolor is loose and leaves some white. I have to check out the paints your using for the flesh tones. Thanks for the tip.

I like the look of how you did watercolors. I am not able to release my OCD self to be that free with the watercoloring yet, but these are always inspiring.
