I created a Art Journal page using gorgeous
Eva stamp with a sentiment from She Is -set.

First I stamped the image in a very light color
Distress Ink to the watercolor paper.

And then added lots and lots of color from DI re-inkers

Added a little gesso and used a some Prismacolor
pens, stamped the sentiment and glued my page
to my black Art Journal book.

Thank you for hopping to my blog,
don't forget to leave a comment,
because someone who comments on my GIU posts this week
will win a great prize from Unity, so cool!!


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.
