Even though We're Apart...


Hi Friends!  Hope all is well with you.  I had a relaxing day at home the past weekend, just making cards.  I also realised I've not played the Unity challenge for a long, long time. 

I'm playing along with the sketch found here:

 

Here's my card:
I kept pretty much to the sketch, as it gave me a chance to take out my tag die to use.  I'm a dies hoarder - I buy a few every month and I think I should stop buying and start using them!  I used my favourite Phyllis Harris set "Present in my Heart" and stamped it on kraft cardstock. 

The Copics I used are:
Skin - E30, E31, E33, R20
Hair - E11, E23, E25, YR23
Sun - Y35, YR04
T-shirt - R81, R83, R85, C1
Shorts - R32, R35, R37, R39
Starfish - R39, R32
Sea - BG000
Sky - BG0000
Sand - E11, E31, Y35

The background was created using the lovely "Poppy Chevron" stamp inked with Memento Desert Sand.

I thought it would be fun to add a little interactive piece to the card.  There's a little pull-out on the right of the image, and there you'll see the other half of the sentiment.


All of you know I'm a fan of Phyllis Harris - I'm so excited my cards using her stamps are published in this week's Australian Cardmaking, Stamping & Papercraft magazine.



Time to check out the beautiful projects at the Unity blog from all my Friends with Flair!

Thank you for visiting me. 

Have a fabulous day!
Kary
