She Decided To Leap!

Greetings!  Just getting back into joining into challenges and found that Unity Stamps has a challenge site called "Be Inspired!"  As you can see above, I chose the color challenge for my project.  I do not have a lot of Unity Stamps, yet, but have recently done some stocking up.  Just waiting for them to arrive.  I began with an 8" x 8" card base.  I added scraps of designer paper in light and true turquoise to the card base.  I then added scraps of a recycled paper bag.  I stamped "She Leaped" on scrap card and water colored her with Inktense Pencils.  After adhering her to the card front, I determined more color was needed in the background so I added several shades of Dylusions Ink Sprays.  To brighten up the background, I dipped a spray bottle cap in Golden Titanium White Fluid Acrylics and stamped it all over the background.  I also added some Golden High Flow White Titanium Acrylic to the right top of the card and let it drip down the card front. The sentiment, also by Unity, was stamped with Archival Ink onto scrap card, trimmed and added to the card front.  The border of the sentiment was added with a Black pen.  A scrap of yellow and white fabric and a yellow button complete my card.  I really enjoyed making this card.  Thanks for dropping by!

Love the layered colours in the background and the words are so good. Lovely stamp - I have it too, and to my shame it is, as yet, uninked. I do have quite few Unity stamps but with DT requirements they don't get to come out often enough. Thank you for the nudge of inspiration as well as the heads-up about the challenge site - hopefully that will kick me into action!
