Unity Friends with Flair (10.2.2012)


Happy Friday!!  It's been a long week for me, and I'm so glad for Friday.  I have a fun card to share, using a set from my favourite Unity line by Phyllis Harris.  When I first saw this stamp set Happiness is..., I knew I had to have it {smiles}. What is one of your earliest childhood memories?  Well, I suppose you can easily guess mine - yupe, it's waiting for my turn to get on the swing! 


I decided to keep this card really simple so the eye is drawn to the girl on the swing.  The girl image was stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa, and the Clouds with Memento Summer Sky. The images are coloured with Copic markers - Skin (E000, E01, E13), Shoes & blouse (RV02, RV10, RV13), Shorts (BG72, BG75, BG78), Hair (E21, E35, E99), Swing (E35, E40, E43, E44), Clouds (BG0000). Patterned papers by Lily Bee Design - Head Over Heels.

Here's another view:

Be sure to head over to the Unity blog for more inspiration from the Unity peeps.  

Thanks for visiting me. Have a lovely day!!
Kary

Kary this is amazing - almost made me feel as though I was swinging - thankfully I was not as I hated swings - they gave me motion sickness!
Love those wee roses, they are fabulous!!

You are so kind to take the time to post your work and describe all the Copics you've used, etc.. Some people never take the time to be so inspirational to others.

Thank you!!
