Growing In Unity- 1 image 3 Ways

Hello, Hello!

It is already Day 4 of Growing in Unity.  The week is flying by.  Don't forget to leave a comment on this blog post for a chance to win 25 Unity stamps.  For more chances to win, comment on each of my GIU blog posts for this week.
Today I am featuring one of my favorite Unity Stamps, You Are Forever Beautiful, buy Angie Blom.
 Angie is so talented; from florals to her Angie girls, bunnies to Butterflies, Angie's images are outstanding.
I decided to show you 3 ways to use this stamp (as I could not settle on any one way to use it), starting with the easiest and ending with the most involved.

I got out my Alcohol Ink Lift Ink and an alcohol ink panel that I had in my stash.


Using my MISTI, I stamped the image with the Lift Ink several times.  Easy Peasy!  I added a sentiment from the Lily Blossom set in gray ink and then die cut the panel with a scalloped rectangle die and popped the outer frame up with dimensional tape.  Once again, I used sequins to finish the card.  I was inspired by the book at The Library Challenge.  I love the rich yet subtle colors of the cover.



Next up, I stamped the image in Versafine ink on water color paper and did some loose watercoloring.



I used my Arteza watercolor pens for this which made it super easy.  As you can see, aside from the sentiment, everything else is the same as the first card.  The sentiment is from Another Name for Love.  I had a heck of a time photographing this card.  Sorry for the two pictures.
I am linking this card up to Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge- Beautiful Blooms

Lastly, I did quite a bit of masking for this card, making it my most involved card.


I used a sketch from Sketch Saturday for this card.  I simply turned the sketch upside down.

I really love how this turned out. I masked the lower portion of the image off each time I stamped.  The sentiment panel hides all of the 'unfinished' images.  The images are colored with Copics and the sentiment, which is from the Girl Truly Sentiment Set, is heat embossed in gold. I embellished the card with gold thread, and of course, sequins.

That's it for me today; I really appreciate you stopping by, and I appreciate all your support through commenting on my blog posts and in the Unity Show and Tell group.  Stampers are the best!
