I'm so excited!!! Growing in Unity Day 1
It's finally here ~ my Growing in Unity week. I AM SO EXCITED!!!!!! Can you tell? This week I want to share a few of my favorite techniques/my styles with you. Most of my projects will be cards ~ you can never have too many ready to send, can you? I hope to share a layout, too. We will see what the week brings. One of the things I really like to use on my cards, is ripped paper. I like the look and I love to distress the edges. Another way I love to use ripped edges is to mask off most of the card except for a wide strip down the middle. I use distress ink and a sponge tool to add the color and them I stamp images in the colored space without removing the mask. I have a few examples to show you today.
After removing the mask, I stamp a sentiment in the white space. Easy to make, so versatile, and very elegant, I think. Sometimes, I will create the card leaving a sentiment off until I need the card. I will then add what I need. Leave a comment today and each day this week for a chance to win two itty bittys of your choice from Unity. I hope you all have a great day!
