Unity Blog Hop

Hello!  Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today.  I recently was selected as the April Winner of the Unity Be Inspired Challenge over at Unity and was invited to be a Guest Artist for their next Blog Hop.



Below are the inspiration projects that I had to choose from.  As you have probably guessed, I chose the color challenge shown below!

To create my card, I began by water coloring a hot press water color panel with soft shades of green and blue.  To create the clouds, I quickly blotted the sky while wet with a baby wipe.  Natalie Girl was stamped next onto scrap water color paper and was colored with TowBow Markers and then trimmed and adhered to the card panel.  The sentiment, flowers, bird and flags were also stamped onto scrap water color paper, and tinted with the same TowBow Markers and painted with a water color brush and water.  I assembled everything on the panel, matted it with black paper and added it to the front of a card base.  Simple embellishments include Viva Décor Liquid Pearls and Ranger Liquid Pearls and black and white Bakers Twine. Stamp sets used include:
 
    Natalie Girl - Angie 1175A
    Tiny Vintage Banners - IB-263
    All Kinds of Happy - UK-764A
    Hello Birdie - UK-760A 
 

I hope you will join us for the Unity Blog Hop which starts here.  Remember to leave a comment for a chance at the Blog Hop prize!
