Growing in Unity Day 4

Hello once again!
It is already my 4th Growing in Unity day.  I was in a very CAS mood while working on these cards,
so today's card- well cards- are CAS design.  Honestly, when the images are this good, I want the focus to be on the images.


I could not resist this adorable image, Finally Here. It was the perfect image to do some monochromatic coloring with my E40s Copics.

I am linking these sweeties up to Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge, 'Furry Friends'.

And I have one more CAS card for you, this time using watercolors~


Yes, this is much more 'artsy'. The butterfly trio is from the set, Butterfly Endearment.  The stamp was colored with Kuretake ZIG Clean Color Watercolor Brush Pens and then spritzed with water.  The image was then stamped on watercolor paper.  I used  my MISTI to determine placement of the stamp, overlapping some as I went along.  I love the effect!
The colors pop even more with a black mat and the black die cut sentiment (WPlus 9).

Don't forget to comment on this blog post, and each of my Growing in Unity Posts this week.  Each day's comment is a chance to win 25 stamps from Unity! 
 
Thanks so much for stopping by and for all of your encouraging comments!
