Today, I have for you something new that I tried. The layout is similar to Tuesday's card, but it is presented vertically instead.
One of my favorite techniques is paper-piecing. I love giving cupcakes patterned frosting and putting patterned elements on all sorts of things -- even animals! This type of paper-piecing I tried today, however, is new to me.
I am in love with this image. I wanted the leaves and grass to be green, but I didn't want that green color on the flowers themselves. I tried it with ink pads, just pressing the green against the grass part and purple against the flower part, but it never looked like I imagined. So I stamped the flowers in black on a second piece of cardstock, colored the flowers with Prismacolor pencils, and pieced those colored flowers onto this image. (Now, if I could just get my camera to behave when photographing purples!)
Please check back every day this week for more Unity
projects. I'll be doing a drawing for a free Itty Bitty stamp from
Unity from all of the comments left this week. Happy Stamping!
