Unity Be Inspired Challenge Take Three!

Gotta say, I love that Unity has so many options for their Be Inspired Challenge. 2 Sketch Challenges and a Color Inspiration Challenge every month. Love it. This month definitely inspired me. So I'm back with my take on the Card Sketch Challenge, since I've already shown you the Layout Sketch And Color Inspiration Challenges.

This is the sketch:


And here's what I did with it:


The stamp set is "Feel the Joy" which is from the Unity Stamp Co. Itty Bitty Collection. I colored it direct to stamp with Tim Holtz Distress Markers(Peeled Paint, Spiced Marmalade, and Festive Berries for the flowers and Walnut Stain for the sentiment). Papers are from My Mind's Eye Stella & Rose- Mabel 6 x 6 paper pad. I'm not entirely sure who made the baker's twine, I've had it for a couple of years. :-) 

So thanks for visiting the last few days. It's been fun, now to finish up baby blankets and make a hat for my niece! :-)

Unity Be Inspired Take Two...

Hi there, so I'm back with another entry for the Unity Be Inspired Challenge for this month. This time I took on the color challenge. I had so much fun playing with the colors and while they reminded me of Halloween, I so didn't do anything Halloween related! I played with the Unity Itty Bitty "Matching Socks" this time, and it was the first time I'd really gotten to play with it, and I'm so glad I did! Those socks are fun to color!

So here was the Color Challenge:

And here's what I did with it!


I added some purple and only used black for an ink pad color, but it was a blast to color! 

Inks Used:
Momento: Tuxedo Black
Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pad: Dusty Concord, Vintage Photo
Spectrum Noir Markers: LG3&5, LV1-3, OR1-3, EB2, TN1

Thanks for stopping by today! Check back tomorrow, I'm hoping to get the card sketch done too yet! :-)

Unity Be Inspired Challenge 01!

Hi all! I'm back! Summer was crazy, didn't get to scrap nearly as much as I wanted to. Did get a lot of other projects done though! So I saw the sketches for Unity's Be Inspired Challenge this month and loved them, decided I needed to actually create them and get back in the swing of scrappy things! This is my first one up, the Layout Sketch. I don't usually follow sketches for layouts, but I really like this one! 

So here's the sketch:



And here's my take on it: 


The papers are from Trinity Paper Arts "Making the Team" collection, all stamps are from Unity Stamp Co.(book w/ apple and "remember this" came in a grab bag, the others are from Splatters and Stars- All Boy which is an itty bitty set). 1st grade is spelled out in Thickers from American Crafts, stamp pads used- TH Distress Ink in Rusty Hinge and Faded Jeans, Momento in Tuxedo Black. Books w/ Apple Stamp is colored with Spectrum Noir Markers(DR3, DR5, BT9, GB7, OR3 & EB2). Apple was make glossy with Mod Podge Dimensional Magic. 

Thanks for visiting, I'm off to play with more paper, I didn't realize how much I missed it until I started playing with it again! :-)
