Be Still..


Today's card is using my favourite Unity stamp "Your Wings Exist" by Phyllis Harris, which is also on sale!  I just love this little girl, I coloured the stamped image with Copic Markers - Skin (E000, E01, E13), Hair (E21, E33, E18, E99) , Grass (YG11, YG17, YG63, E31).  Her dress is paper pieced and I added some shadows using Copic Marker C1.  I masked the girl image and stamped the background "Giving It All Meaning" with Versafine Smoky Gray and sponged some Distress Inks Tumbled Glass and Spun Sugar over it. Then I used Spellbinders Floral Ovals to cut out the image, and sponged more Tumbled Glass just over the floral edges for more definition. The background white cardstock was embossed with Spellbinders M-Bossabilities So Trendy (I love this!).  The sentiment was stamped on vellum and I embossed the edges with dots for some interest.

I hope you like this card.  Be sure to check out the Unity blog for more inspiration from the Friends with Flair participants today.

Enjoy!
Kary
