Hi everyone! Here's a card I put together using the Unity Stamp Company kit "Best Fishes." Isn't it a fun set for the guys?
I achieved the coloring of the fish by using a lot of white and a little bit of blue watercolor pencil over top of the stamped image. Then I used a blender pen to activate the watercolor pencil and push the white onto the dark fins for some pop.
About the embellishments: The paper clip is one that I brought home from France ten years ago because I loved the shape and bright metallic colors. And in the world of coincidences, I bought those paperclips at a "papeterie"- a "stationery store" which is one of the words on the stamp. Funny how that works, huh? The button is a freebie from a Unity order I received long ago. One thing I appreciate is that Unity typically sends a free gift with every order. Small orders might get a tag and some buttons or a journaling card while bigger orders often qualify for free stamp sets. It's always fun to get a thank you gift.
What is going to get you through your Wednesday? I have a dinner out with friends from my church tonight, so that should be a fun motivator to get me through the work day.
Don't forget to leave comments each day this week for chances to win the grab bags Unity is offering. Their grab bags are awesome and you don't want to miss out!
