Growing in Unity: Day Three!

Welcome to Day 3 of my Growing In Unity Week!

Thanks so much for all the sweet comments.  I really do appreciate that you take the time to send a comment.

Today I am sharing two cards that I made with the stamp kit, Another Name for Love.

This is a recent release that was designed by Gina Krupsky from Gina K Designs, especially for Unity Stamps.  Gina is a very good friend of mine, and I was thrilled to go visit her just two weeks ago at her store in Wisconsin!

I love peonies.  And I love this new set.  The sentiments are gorgeous and the peonies and that butterfly are amazing.




I used the peony image and my Zig Clean Color brush markers to watercolor two similar but very different cards.  



One  is a very pale white and pink peony with a light watercolor washed background.  I wanted to paint loosely, but honestly loose just never seems to work well for me.  I have such a hard time letting go of the control!


And the second is a brighter pink flower with a white background.  This one makes me happier because it feels and looks (to me) to be more under control!  LOL

Someday, I want to learn to just paint freely, and let the water flow where it wants to go...  but not today.  LOL


Thanks for stopping by again today.  Don't forget to leave a comment to be entered in the drawing for one of two prize packs of 20 random Unity Stamps!  

Have a great day!
I'll be back again tomorrow for Day 4!

  21. These are lovely examples of your work. I have trouble with the loosey goosey painting. I always think it looks good when others do it, and it looks messy and kiddish when I try.

  28. Your coloring is beautiful, on both cards! But I must agree with you, I like the brighter pink one better as well. It just looks more polished. Plus, I love the embossed background (I love embossing!). TFS your lovely cards with us today.
