Unity Hip Hop - Bold Distress Ink Watercolor

Good evening! Time for this month's hip hop with Unity Stamp Company! We are all playing with a bunch of new releases from the past few days - and boy are they FUN! I had such a productive day of cardmaking yesterday that I made FIFTEEN different cards - and EIGHT Quick Tip Videos - here is one of them, and quite possibly my favorite of the bunch!



Seriously - I had never done this before making the video - just decided to try it on a whim, and LOVED how it turned out! I recently got my first mini size distress inks and was itching for a reason to play with them - this was the perfect excuse!



I can't wait to try this with more stamped images and color combos - I did use watercolor paper for this too - think I forgot to mention this in the video!


It was die cut with a simple stitched rectangle die, then mounted on a plain white card base.


Make sure and hop along to win one of the prizes for leaving comments!


And don't forget to check out the weekend sales!



Here are links to the products I used on this including affiliate links where possible - and below that the rest of the stops along the hop - make sure and visit them all! Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful evening!
