GIU Day 5

Hi all! How does a week go so fast when you're having fun? So today is my final day as a Growing in Unity girl 2017 for Unity Stamp Company. I went completely off the page today and decided to do a canvas. I'm not entirely sure if I'm keeping or gifting it yet but it's fun. :-) Today I played with the Canvas Wishes set that was released in May 2014. I love this set, it's huge and so fun to use. I used it on a canvas that I covered using Dylusions Ink Sprays. I didn't ink the stamps, instead I used water to lift the color. The words on the bottom were hand lettered by me using my trusty water brush. 

So much color and fun.... I kind of love it. 

Don't forget to leave a comment today (or leave comments on the other 4 days if you haven't already) because I will be picking 2 winners on Saturday night to win some Unity Stamp Co. goodies! :-)

Thanks so much for visiting my blog this week!

  8. I LOVE THIS! Beautiful colors. When you say "you used water to lift the color" do you mean you stamped in water then on the canvas? I may have to try this! Thanks so much for sharing with us this week :)

    1. Yep, I dipped the stamp in water, let the excess drip off and then stamped on the canvas with it. This technique also works well with the Tim Holtz Distress Inks.

  9. Omg! Awesome.....I love this canvas!

  11. This is so pretty and I learned a new technique. Thank you for sharing.
