Growing in Unity Day 4 - Watercolor Flowers (and my first video!)

{This is my second post today - if you are looking for Day 1 of the Mini Release for My Craft Spot click HERE or scroll down to the last post}

Good morning again! I'm excited to be this weeks Growing in Unity gal for Unity Stamp Company! If you don't know how it works, I get to share my projects all week long, and then pick a comment from sometime during the week to win two itty bitty stamps of their choice! So...the more comments you leave, the better chance you have of winning! I will draw and announce a winner on May 5th! I have been so in love with the Watercolor trend lately, that I decided to do a weeks worth of watercolor projects! I am also going to give away a set of the same watercolor paints I have been using all week - so you can try out the watercolor trend as well!

So yesterday I had a couple of questions on how I had created my cards, and decided that the easiest way to share would be to make a video...my very FIRST video actually! So - I got brave and gave it a try! Here is the card I made:


And here is my video on the process I used:

I used the itty bitty called Poppy Bundle, along with the April 2014 Kit of the Month for my sentiment.


Once the video was finished, I just matted it in two shades of Avery Elle cardstock, and then attached to my white card base.


I would love to hear what you think of my first video! I was a little scared - and I know I have a LOT to learn, but figured there was no time like the present!

Thanks so much for stopping by this week! See you again tomorrow!

  7. Heather, it's lovely. You don't have to heat set the pigment ink? (I have Versacolor pads.) By the way, we have the same watercolor set at our house!
