GUI Day 1 2017

Growing in Unity
Day 1

Hey crafty Unity Fans
Its my week as the Growing in unity Girl.
Im happy yo be back again this year to inspire you all to get crafty and step out of your comfort zone. 

Too start it out this week, I made 2 cards with a lil different styles using the same stamp. 

Here's my first card...

This one is more clean and simple. 
I left this pretty girl uncolored for a more clean look. I love the way this stamp looks with a little color behind her, so I stamped the image on a light color Designer paper from Queen and Co. (Mother Nature).
From the same collection, I used other color pages to add my layers to make the imagr pop more. 
Adding the sentiment "You got this". 
I popped it off the card using 3D dots and added some washi tape behind it. 
Feeling my card needed a lil more, I added some flowers by Petaloo. 

For my 2nd card, I wanted it to be a lil more spunky and fun. 

I spritzed directly to the card stock with Deco art media shimmer mister
(Turquoise), for my base. 
I then stamped the image to white card stock and using my GELATOS and water colored the image in with a paint brush. 
Using core'finations pastels card stock I cut it down to size and using just a pair of scissors, distressed the edge all the way around it. 
I added some paper flowers I spruced up with Ken Oliver colorburst and liquid metals spritzing with water to achieve a tye dye look. 
This card is more on the mixed media side but fun none the less.

I hope you enjoyed my projects today.
Hopefully i inspired you to try to mix this up a bit. 
Just wait until you see what else you can create using Unity stamps.
Stop by tomorrow to see.
