Give Thanks Every Day!

 
Greetings!  Thanks for dropping by today.  My post today is for two challenges.  The first is for the new "Be Inspired" Challenge over at Unity Stamps.  I am very excited to have been selected as the winner of last month's challenge over at Unity!

I like how you can pick from three challenges.  I am always drawn to the color challenge!  For my own card, I was inspired by the work of Kate Yetter.  I am so drawn to her distinctive stylized cards.  For my own card, I began with hot press water color paper.  I spritzed on several Distress Ink Stains and then added torn pieces of a vintage book page using fluid matte medium.  More Distress Ink Stains were added along with a spritz of water for dripping. (All images and the sentiment are by Unity Stamps.)  The beautiful butterflies, were inked and stamped next.  I added of washi tape.  The focal image "Grace" was stamped on scrap hot press water color paper and colored with Towbow Markers.  It was trimmed and added to the panel.  A sentiment was stamped in the lower right hand corner.  A few Viva Décor Liquid Pearls complete my card.   My card is also for the new challenge at Make My Monday where the theme is "Things with Wings."
