Growing in Unity - Day 2

Hi all,

Welcome back and I hope you had a wonderful Monday. I'm not sure about everyone else but I'm having a lovely time, not only am I enjoying bringing my stamping goodness to you but I am currently on holiday in the gorgeous seaside town of Dunsborough in the south west of Western Australia.

Today's project:

I started out with a white piece of card and inked around the edges with 3 different pink colours from Tim Holtz's Distress Inks - Spun Sugar, Victorian Velvet and Worn Lipstick. I used the little heart from the March 2016 Kit of the Month: A Chance to Change and stamped it randomly in the inked area, just for some added interest. In the centre I stamped this cute owl and the quote from the January 2013 Kit of the Month: All Hearts & Love (not sure if you can get this KOTM anymore but they sell these stamps as a set and that is what I've linked you to). I coloured them in with some markers and then used some Glossy Accents over the 'Be Mine'. A simple but effective one layer card.

Well that's it for today, I'm off to get Simmo's - the best ice cream around!
Take care and happy crafting,
Helen xx

  2. Cute card. Using the glossy accents on a larger sentiment like that is a good idea.
