Growing in Unity, Day 2 - Life is Better with Friends

Welcome to Day 2 of my Growing in Unity Week.  Be sure to leave comments each day for a chance to win a fabulous prize package of 25 random stamps from Unity Stamp Company!  Whoop!  Kathryn is also Growing in Unity this week.  She's got some GrEaT stuff lined up for you too.

Today, I created a card that is a bit outside my normal wheelhouse using Unity Stamp Company, Spanky!  (I love the name of this stamp-of-the-week set!!)


Eeek, I love that lil bird!  The background of this card is Ken Oliver Color Burst on TH watercolor cardstock.  The birdie is colored with Y06, Y08 and YR16 Copics.  I added some pink Nuvo drops for the heart and some yellow ones to the background.  In both cases, the Nuvo picked up some of the background ink (which is why they are all or partly green.  I thought that was a cool effect.

Thanks so much for stopping by today and for your sweet comments.

Craftily yours,

Karen
