Today is the day I start my week as the Growing In Unity Girl to showcase Unity Stamp Co.'s stamps! I am so excited to show all of you what I have been up to! I discovered Unity Stamp Company a couple of years ago, and they quickly became a favorite! I love their style! For my first day, I have decided to showcase the "Everything Happens for a Reason" stamp set. I love this stamp because sunflowers are my FAVORITE! A technique that has caught my eye was the dotting technique so I thought this was the perfect stamp to showcase that technique.
First thing I did was stamp the image on the 110lb Neenah Solar White card panel with black Memento Ink because I was going to use my Copic markers to color this image. After I stamped the image, I did colored the image with Copic colors YR09, YR16, Y17, YG67, YG25 and YG01. After I colored the image, I started "dotting" around the top of the image using the same Copic colors of the flowers, using the darker color first and dotted around the image. I then randomly dotted a couple of more layers with the darker color. I then added a couple of layers of the next shade of color and then ended the layers with the lightest color. The dotting was random to fill the spots I felt needed to be filled and followed the height of the stamp. I was pleased with the result! I then stamped the sentiment that came with the stamp set under the flower image using Hero Arts Intense Black ink and added some enamel dots that complimented the color scheme of the flowers. I then glued the card panel to Granny Apple Green cardstock from Stampin Up to bring out the green in the leaves of the image. I then glued the card panel to a 110lb black card base. I am very pleased with how this came out. It is a clean and simple card and I love that about it! Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
