Friends With Flair Friday!


Can I get a big whoop whoop for Friday?! It's been a trying week at work and I'm sooooo looking forward to a weekend with no plans except for a little me time in my craft room spent with my brand spankin' new Unity March Kit of the Month! A whole 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of new rubber goodness...do you have yours yet?

Last night I just had to sneak in a card before bedtime. I'll admit this winged heart isn't an image I would ever pick out and buy on my own but when presented in a kit it helps me try new things. When I held the rubber in my hand it just spoke to me and I knew it had to be the first image for me to use from the bunch.


I was inspired by the designer paper from My Minds Eye and used that as the base background of the card. The reverse side had a super cute print of plaid that I thought would be perfect for the heart center. I stamped the winged image on vanilla cardstock and the designer paper. I used a copic marker to add a touch of the aqua color to negative space on the wings. Thanks to the deep etching of the Unity images I was able to pull off stamping the sentiment onto a thickly textured piece of vanilla cardstock...LOVE that!



This is my first time playing along in the Friends With Flair blog hop (but not my last!) so I am SUPER excited to be posting this blinkie. Unity is giving away 25 stamps to one lucky person...will it be you? Just leave me a comment and it could be! I'll be selecting a random winner on Saturday morning and leaving the results as a post here and on this thread at SCS. Now go visit some other blogs in the hop and leave some love!




Unity Flair!

I really like the way your did the heart with wings, using the plaid really brings it together with the background and makes for a good color combination on a unique design! Thanks for sharing.
