Growing In Unity - Day Five

Happy Friday! I have had so much fun this week posting Unity inspired projects and sharing some of my favorite tips and techniques. Today I have three cards to share, using another flower image from Donna Downey's Insightful Meadows stamp set & a sentiment from one of the many Kits of the Month I own.

To achieve the two-toned look I was going for, I colored directly on the rubber of the stamp with Stampin' Up! markers. Then I huffed on the ink (to re-moisten it), and carefully stamped onto white cardstock.

The butterflies were punched out using a Martha Stewart butterfly punch, and embellished with gems that I colored using my Copic markers.

I love how soft and feminine the pink and green version is.

I love this stamp... it's definitely one of my favorites. If you don't already own the Insightful Meadows stamp set, I highly recommend it. It's one of my most used stamp sets.

Thank you for stopping by and checking out my Unity inspired cards this week! You have until Midnight (Eastern) tonight to leave a comment. The winner will receive a Unity stamp set! I will post the winner sometime tomorrow.

Have a wonderful weekend, friends.
