Welcome back to another Unity Thursday Hop! It's a busy day in Unity land, as we have great sales, a new Unity Be Inspired Challenge, and a brand new sentiment kit... and prizes, of course!
Make sure once you're finished with the hop, to stop by the Unity challenge here! We have a lot of inspiration to share, and more details on how you can enter your project! The winner gets a HUGE prize package AND they get to be our guest hopper for the month!
Here's how I was inspired by the color challenge...
These gorgeous images are from the August Kit of the Month. I water colored the images and then did a complete wash over the paper with a wet brush. This dragged the colors across the card, and I thought it added to the 'wind blown' look of falling leaves :)
This card is much more 'refined' than my usual look. I used the brand new September Kit of the Month, and I want to share with you how I created the falling leaves background...
Step 1 - Stamp distress inks directly onto your craft mat. I used "Wild Honey" and "Spiced Marmalade". Then mist the inks with water.
Step 2 - Dab your stamp into the inks on your craft mat. Then repeatedly stamp onto your cardstock.
Step 3 - Repeat as many times as you want. You can usually get 3 stamp impressions from one 'dab' in the ink. The result is a watercolor look with the leaf images peaking through. In the finished card, I placed a layer of vellum over the panel.
Now time to share the sales! It's a good one this week, so get shopping!
Thanks for stopping in :) Now your next stop is the always amazing SHILO
