Good evening! It's time for this month's Unity monthly Blog Hop - and this month is extra special as Unity is celebrating their 10th BIRTHDAY!!!
I have two cards using some of the many fabulous new releases! Woohoo!!! First up - one of my favorite flowers is the peony - so when I saw Angie Blom doodling this, I was SOOOO hoping it would become a stamp. Imagine my delight when I saw it in the new releases! Couldn't WAIT to color it up! It is called You Are Forever Beautiful:
Someday soon I should maybe do a video for this card - I actually used COPIC markers to color this - not watercolors! I used a pink, yellow, orange, and coral color and colored them up using THIS image on Pinterest as my inspiration:
My coloring ended up a bit more on the orange side, but I was really happy with how they came out!
I added some gold splatters with my Starry Colors Palette, and a sentiment from the July 2016 Sentiment Kit Let Your Wishes Fly, heat embossed in gold on a piece of black cardstock. Before I adhered that down, I added a twist of gold thread underneath.
I also couldn't resist using the new Focus on the Things stamp set - another gorgeous Angie Blom image!
For this one I actually did use watercolors - my Zig watercolor brushes - and blended with a waterbrush.
I added some Pinkfresh Studio pattern paper underneath, and a couple stickers to embellish and finish this card off!
Here is the entire blog hop line-up - make sure and hit every stop and leave comments along the way to win a Unity Prize Pack!
