About Me

My photo

Well, I can't really tell you allllll about me! LOL. But I can tell you that I'm a wife, mother, grandmother, aunt, cousin, and Christian. And I love scrapbooking, card making, painting, and altered art.  I love to coordinate parties with themes and come up with new ways to incorporate paper art into them.   I enjoy working with my hands and making something out of nothing.  It's such a wonderful thing to know that there are so many beautiful women out there who share the same passion for this hobby....ART! that I do. I draw inspiration from everything around me and from people like you! So, let's get scrappin'!

Unity Stamp Company: Be Inspired

Hi all:

I am having fun playing with water colors and Unity Stamp Company stamps!

They've been having GREAT sales and I'm amassing a nice stash. Yahoooooo!

I so love Angie Blom's "Girls!"  But my favorite of them all, is the stamp that I've used below; "Harmony."  It is so beautifully drawn. I can just stare at it and stare at it.  I find it to be so lovely. Bare or with some color. Just beautiful.

I'm always peeking in on what other crafters are doing on the Unity blog.  Anyway, I decided to join in on the fun and enter into the challenge this week. It's been awhile since I joined in any challenges anywhere.  The holidays were filled to the max with parties and such and I actually took a little break from entering into any challenges with time lines.

For this challenge:  You can choose to follow the INSPIRATION COLOR PHOTO or You can choose to follow the sketch loosely for your CARD PROJECT - Scrapbook Page - Art Journal OR Mixed Media Project.  

And so I decided to do a card for my entry into the challenge.

I actually colored in two images using my watercolors

Both cards were first stamped, using StazOn ink in Jet Black on Canson watercolor paper, 140lb weight.  I love that paper. It's heavy and can take a lot of wetness.  I love the image so much that I didn't want to add a lot of embellishments and so I left them pretty simple.  I've used three of the inspiration colors to do both cards.  Completing them with simple sentiments; also part of the Unity stamp line.

The Unity Challenge will post Each Month (on the second Thursday) and go for ONE full month ending the Wednesday night before the next challenge. So, take a peek at Unity for some wonderful stamps from some very talented ladies.  I'm sure you'll find something that you would love to have!

Until next time
