I'm thankful for the opportunity and grateful for all of you that have taken time out of your day to visit and comment. I really appreciate your encouragement.
For my final post, I chose to use some of the latest release kits. My mailbox was full of some new goodies on Tuesday, so I needed to ink them up!
I received the new peony kit by Angie Blom and Lisa Arana, Rebuild Your Life, so of course I inked that immediately!
I inked this peony up with Memento Summer Sky ink and stamped on a piece of XPress It blending card. I colored with RV 81, 83, and 85, then added the deepest petal cast shadows with W5 before adding RV69 over the top of the W5. I used E55, and 77 to add the flower center, and highlighted a few areas and petal edges with a white Signo pen. The stem and leaf are G21, 24, 29, and the shadow was added last with B60. The sentiment was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black.
And lastly, I inked up a handful of these cute owl images for graduation cards. I belong to a cardmaking group at my church, and we donate our handmade cards for sale as a fundraiser to support various programs and needs within the congregation and community. I love being able to help in ways that I enjoy so much. Graduation cards are huge sellers, so I wanted to get started on a pile of them. The new Stamp Kit, Owl Graduate, also designed by Lisa Arana, was perfect to make a set of cards.
I stamped several on the images on and colored them with Copic markers. I added Clear Wink of Stella pen over the cap base and stole to make them look like satin. The sentiments were stamped separately and layered with the matching layering paper.
And that's it for my GIU week! I have enjoyed this week very much, and have been honored to share my love of Unity Stamps with you. Thank you for visiting, and I hope you'll stop by again soon.
