Hope... Growing in Unity Day 3



Hi, and welcome back to Day 3 of Growing In Unity week!  If you are visiting for the first time, you can always click the links back to Day 1 and Day 2's postings.  Don't forget to leave a comment and you will be in the draw to win Two Itty Bittys of your choice.  I'll announce the winner on my blog at the end of the week.

Today's card has a slightly different style, more vintage and distressed.  The stamp sets I've used are "Dream To Be" and "Wood Grain Script"  I think these are such versatile sets.


 First I stamped the Wood Grain script, with Memento Desert Sand and the edges with Memento Espresso Truffle.  The edges are torn and I sponged some Memento Rich Cocoa around it.  The Bird image was stamped using Memento Espresso Truffle and coloured with Copic Markers (Leaves YG61, YG63, YG67; Bird Y38, BG02, YG11, Y21).  The patterned paper is from My Mind's Eye, embossed with an embossing folder, and some sponging on the embossed areas.

I hope you like the card.  Be sure to visit me again tomorrow for another Unity project.

Thanks for stopping by.
Kary

Although you use distressed materials, the outcome of this card is beautiful. The colours blend in very well. Nothing "distressed" about it :)

WOW, if that is an "easy" card I wouldn't want to attempt a "hard" one. . .lol! You make beautiful cards and are very talented. I am so glad to have found your blog through the Unity site and am now following you.

I LOVE this card! Love the embossed base piece and the stamping and coloring. There are so many layers between the embossing and stamping and actual paper layers, it's such a rich card!
