Growing in Unity - Day 2
Thanks for stopping by today. If you happened to stop by yesterday, then you already know that I am the Growing in Unity Gal this week. Each day I'll be sharing a creation of mine using stamps from Unity Stamp Company. Be sure to leave a comment as there are goodies up for grabs from Unity at the end of the week!
As I mentioned yesterday, I decided to get brave and try my hand at watercolouring this week. Nothing fancy, mostly just trying to master backgrounds first before I step into watercolouring images - mostly because I NEED to find an ink that I can use on my canvases for stamping that doesn't smudge when I add the watercolours. I'm thinking an archival ink will work - or maybe Stazon? My black Stazon had dried out so I need to pick up a new one to try.
Here's another little fun canvas I tried. Again, the canvas background is watercoloured but the cute little unicorn and rainbow cloud (from Unicorns & Rainbows) are stamped on paper, coloured with Copic markers and then adhered to the canvas.
I'm thinking it would make a fun, inspirational prezzie for someone in my T.O.P.S. group.
And, again, I made a quick little card with the second image I had coloured up.
Not sure if you can see it but I added a little sparkle to the stars with my Copic clear Spica marker.
Hope you enjoyed today's projects! Pop back again tomorrow when I'll be sharing my Day 3 GIU projects!
