My Favorite Unity Blog hop

Hello everyone! Welcome to Unity Stamps Favorite stamp kit blog hop. I was the Growing in Unity girl this past week. Today, all the GIU girls of September and October are having a fun hop with their favorite Unity Stamp kit. You must have come from Amber Sheaves. If not, here's the hop order.


Let's get on to my card. I chose the Always Begin Again - KOTM 3/15. I chose this mainly because of the image of the girl :)

Here's my card:


I used the image of the girl and colored her with my marker. I love this image!! Her subtle smile, her flowing hair appealed to me. My coloring is not very good. This is the first image with skin tone that I've attempted to color. I did a trial version. Those of you following me on Instagram might have seen it. I couldn't resist adding a chain :D. I thought of adding pearls, but didn't have any that matched her dress. So I drew dots with the same marker and covered it with glossy accents. I used glossy accents for her hair band as well.

The sentiment is also from the same set. I used the same marker to ink the stamp. I used my punch to make the border. I didn't have a matching ribbon. So I used my marker to color a white ribbon :)

Hope you enjoyed today's hop. Oh! and there are prizes too. Two lucky people will be chosen from among those who leave comments on our blogs and they will win a Unity Grab Bag of 25 stamps each! Winners will be announced on Unity blog.

Thanks for stopping by. Please leave your thoughts and comments. Thanks for your comments on my GIU posts. I enjoyed reading them. I will announce my winners of the GIU posts on Monday.

Your card is absolutely gorgeous! I am in awe when people color their stamped images. I am not very good at it yet, but practice makes perfect! P.S. I think you have your blog stops in the wrong order. My blog should be the one after yours, not the first in the list :)

I always love to add some sparkle, or glossy accents to small parts on a stamp. The tiniest details can make all the difference. I think her skin looks great!

Sue D said...

Very pretty. I like the chain you added and the use of glossy accents.
