Hey everyone! Today is my final day as the Growing In Unity Girl and I have had so much fun this week! I want to say thank you to all of you that have stopped by and said hello and I hope that you have enjoyed my projects this week and that I have inspired you! I also want to thank Unity Stamp Co. for this awesome opportunity to showcase their AWESOME stamps and I hope that I have done them justice!
For my final card this week, I went outside of my comfort zone on color choices. I usually gravitate towards purples and teals and with Spring in the air, I wanted to go with brighter colors.
First, I stamped the flower image from the One of Those People stamp set onto 110lb Neenah Solar White with Memento black ink. I then cut the image out using my Scan-N-Cut. I love my Scan-N-Cut so I can cut out images that do not have coordinating dies. I then colored the flower image with Copic markers using colors YR09, YR16. Y17, YG67, YG25. YG01, B69 and B24. I then cut out a piece of 110lb cardstock with a deckled die from Tim Holz and stamped portions of it with the background stamp Love Story using Suede Shoes ink from Catherine Pooler. I stamped in three sections, the upper left hand corner, the lower left hand corner, and the right side middle edge. I then took the splatter stamp from the Unusual Day Poppy stamp set from Unity and added splatter marks using Orange Twist, Tiki Torch, and Suede Shoes inks from Catherine Pooler. I then stamped the sentiment from One of Those People stamp set in the Suede Shoes ink. I glued the flower image on the left hand side of the card panel using Bearly Art Precision Craft Glue and then I glued the sentiment on the lower left hand corner of the card panel. I wanted to add some more orange color, so I grabbed a stencil from Gabrielle Pollacco called Mini Jungle Vines and stenciled on a separate card panel using the Orange Twist ink. When I use a stencil, I keep the stencil in place using Mint Tape by Scrapbook.com, which is great! I have a hard time finding the Purple Tape, so I started using the Mint Tape and I love it. I then glued the stenciled card panel to a card base using Blueberry Bushel from Stampin Up. Then I popped up the deckled card panel onto the stenciled card panel using foam tape. I then added some blue enamel dots I had in my stash to complete the look.
I am so glad that I went outside of my comfort zone when picking these colors. I love how it turned out and the colors pop!
