Growing In Unity Day 1

I'm so super excited and totally 
thrilled, the week that I've been 
waiting for almost an year is finally here.

I have the honor of being the "Growing In Unity gal" (GUI)! 
So from Monday through Friday this week 
I'll be featuring fabulous Unity stamps.
I hope you'll like my makes and visit often and write a comment;
because someone will be winning some awesome 
red rubber Unity stamps, YAY!! 
So hop to my blog, leave a comment, and you might win!!!!

For today I made some teabag art using
beautiful Poppies stamp (I got this stamp from
a surprise bag - they are really worth the money)

For the first card I just stamped the image using
brown Distress Ink.

I placed a piece of paper under the teabag so that the 
image would show better.

For a second card I stamped the image on the teabag
and also to the paper I was placing under it.

I roughly colored the image going under.

And it gave nice soft color to the flowers.

For a third card I colored my teabag poppies
with Inktense pens. Teabag don't handle rubbing
very well, so if you do this, be gentle with your brush.

Thank you so much for hopping to my blog today,
I hope to see you again tomorrow.

  7. I just love these cards. I have some tea bags that I have been saving to stamp on and the idea of putting a colored image behind them is so beautiful that I will have to try it. My first year as a GIU gal was at this time too and it is so hard to wait that long. Enjoy each day because it goes by so quickly.
