GIU Day 3 - Comfort And Peace

Hello everyone!! Welcome to Day 3 of my Growing in Unity week. I have a soft and simple card for today.


I stamped the flowers from the Never Be Afraid stamp set with the Brutus Monroe Sidewalk surface ink for no-line coloring. Then I stamped the sentiment with black ink. I colored the image with my copic markers. I used R59, R29, R37, R35 and R32 for the flowers, C7, C5, C3 and C1 for the flower centers and G99, YG67, YG63 and YG03 for the leaves and stems. I adhered a piece of grey card stock on to an A2 card base. I then trimmed the image panel to 4" x 5 1/2" and adhered it on to the card. I love how soft and calm it looks!

How do you like this card? Let me know in the comments. Unity Stamps has generously offered a prize of a grab bag of 25 random stamps to 2 people who comment on my GIU posts. You have until Sunday night to comment on all my GIU posts. I will pick a winner on Monday. 

Here's my previous GIU posts:

Thank you for stopping by today. Please do visit me tomorrow to see a new project with Unity Stamps. Hope you have a great day.

I have seen the no line coloring for watercolors, but not markers. Your card is stunning done that way. I have also learned about a new ink brand (like I need more, lol.)

Great card!!! Love the effect, have not been able to do this technique.... but then I'm a tactile learner (meaning I have to do it to learn it). This would make a lovely sympathy card (as I get older, more needed for family members and friends).

I love Unity Stamp Co. I’m in the process of moving to Ca. from NY . I should be in our new place by the end of next week. I had to cancel my KOTM because I just didn’t know how long I would be in NY. I can’t wait to start my ordering again !
I just love what you did here with this flower, you actually brought it to life ! Your coloring is GREAT . The combination of colors you used really bring the whole thing together.
