Growing in Unity Day 1 2016 Halloween inspired

Growing in Unity
Day 1
Halloween inspired....

Hey crafty friends.... It's that time again... Another great year as a GIU Girl.  

I always have loved being able to be apart of Growing in Unity.  Unity Stamp Company is a great company and has amazing stamps... Have you seen the selection?  So many beautiful stamps to create with.

Here's how it works.... I post a project that was inspired by using Unity stamps every day this week.  You get to visit with me every day here on my blog and if you leave a comment every day, I will enter you into a giveaway at the end of the week to win some Unity stamps of your own.  Sounds like a good deal to me.  There will be 2 winners.

As you can see if you view past blog posts, I haven't posted in a while.  I guess I needed a much needed break from blogging for a while and what a great way to starting blogging again.  So lets get on to it..

My first project this week was inspired by Halloween, its coming up so quickly.  I started out with a black canvas. This is my first time using them, as I always just used white ones.  I wanted to use some of Unity's stamps that I have either not used yet or that I found more challenging on canvas.
Here is what I came up with....







Unity stamps I chose for this project were from the November 2014 smak kit.
The moon, flying birds and the tree branch.

I wanted the image to look dark and more Halloween night looking.

I used different color ink pads from Archival and Colorbox along with Tim Holtz distress stamper and my hands to blend the colors in the sky.  I used Faber-Castell PITT artist pen for the water.
I added the tree limb because every time I take a picture one always seems to get in the way.  But also to reflect it off the water as well.  I think it came out pretty well.  This project was also to show everyone that Stamps are not just for paper... They can be used in so many creative ways.  You just have to open your mind and think outside the box.  I hope you liked my project today and I do have some pretty neat projects in store for you this week.

And dont forget the leave me a comment.  I like hearing what you think as well as Hey... There is a chance to win some amazing Unity stamps.  (Grab bag of 25 stamps). There will be 2 winners.

Thanks for visiting.
Hugs
