Cards with Unity's KOM

This card was made using a mix of KOM 09/08 Friendship, Love, Miracles & Growing In Unity sets.  I kind of love how it turned out.  Here's how I made the card:

  • Focal Background - stamped Growing in Unity flourish stamps using 4 Distressed inks - Broken China, Shabby Shutters, Scattered Straw and Antiqued Linen.

  • Using a stamp-a-ma-jig, I stamped the sentiment using Versafine Onyx Black.

  • Stamp the butterfly with Versafine Smokey Gray & coloured it using a blue & green colour pencils. Go over the dots on the butterfly with Marvy Glitter pen (silver).

  • Stamp the scallop border on a scrap white cardstock, and colour it randomly using the same blue & green colour pencils.

  • Adhere the scallop to the bottom of the main focal image.

  • The faux stitching was with a Souffle pen in light green.

This is a Clean & Simple card done with Unity's KOM 09/08.  I love all the stamps from that kit.  Here's what I did:
  • I stamped the scallop border in Distress Ink Broken China, and coloured it with a blue & green colour pencils.
  • Next, I stamped the sentiment using Versamark and brushed Pearl-ex over the stamped area. 
  • Then, I stamped the trees using Versafine Onyx Black, and coloured it using 2 shades of colour pencils. 
  • Pearl-ex is a little messy and it doesn't just stay where it's supposed to, so I brushed on 2 other colours of Pearl-ex above the sentiment - a pale greeen and brown.
Thought I'd leave it as a really simple card.
