Unity Thursday Hop (My first!)

Did you hear the amazing news?! I am so excited and honored to be a new member of the Unity Stamp Company design team! This is such an amazing company that I have been a fan of for a long time... to be 'official' just makes me squeal with joy! So welcome to my first ever official Unity Thursday Blog Hop! woohoo!

You should have arrived here from the talented Kris. If not, just start at the beginning over at the Unity blog.


Here is a brand new stamp that comes free with any order over $15! It's called "Boots, Class, and Sass" and I immediately played with this sassy boot...



I colored the image with Prismacolor Pencils and blended with mineral oils. The sentiment is layered over some DCWV 'Corrugate Mat Stack' that I shaded with white India ink. I'm hoping the snow melts soon so I can see some of these gorgeous flowers!


Have you had a peek yet at the March 2014 KOTM? The bird alone has me swooning :)



These images were also colored with Prismacolor Pencils and blended with mineral oil. They are mounted on a journal card die cut (by Lawn Fawn) and pattern paper from Studio Calico 'Atlantic' pad.

We have TWO amazing Unity filled prize packages to give away! Leave a comment on EACH blog in the hop (including the Unity blog) for your chance to win. The winners will be announced Saturday night on the Unity blog. 

Your next stop is the amazing Swarup
