Day 5, last day of my Growing in Unity week

I'm a bit sad that this is my last day of the Growing in Unity week.

Each week 2 fans of Unity Stamps will show a project a day in their week, and this week it is my turn and from Pam Nezrick Lois.
We will show you the whole week how fabulous the stamps of the Unity Stamp company are.


But.. at least we still have the Facebook group , Unity Show and Tell, where we can show all the Unity projects we make!!

For my last project...I made a card again :D






I used the same cute owls I used on day 1, and some leaves from another set.
Kraft card, used a stencil to add some structure paste.
Colored the paste with distress inks, and added a pocket from an old jeans, I knew I saved it for some reason, LOL
I colored the images with copics, some buttons and ribbons to finish the card.

Now...if you want to have a chance to win a grabbag with  25 Unitystamps...make sure to comment on my Unity posts,and I will draw 2 lucky winners soon!!

I enjoyed this Unity week, I hope you did too!


Next week it is the turn of Angie 'Baehre' VerDuin and Brittany Kohl!!

This is a little square canvas board, about 6 inches.
I painted it with acrylic paint and put a varnish over it.

Added a doily, flower and some die cut , an fabric flower and corc buttons.
The stamp, from the same set as the sentiment from yesterday, is a bit colored with pencils and glossy accents on the hearts.
