|"Martha.... It got the dogs this time!!!"|
------------Joan Asper McIntosh
I'm here with the first of two Unity - Friends with Flair posts. This card definitely has a masculine look, but could be for either. I received this Unity sentiment stamp some time back, and I don't see it in their catalog anymore....although there is one with the words only. I teamed it up with my Winnie & Walter - Scenery: Big Bang Confetti to enter in their big First Birthday Challenge extravaganza!!
I first sponged a bit of Distress Ink - Mustard Seed onto my cardstock and then stamped my stars in Versamark and heat embossed them in clear. This gave my stars a slight yellow tinge and added interest to the other Distress Inks I used
(Worn Lipstick, Broken China, Stormy Sky, Salty Ocean, Dusty Concord).
I stamped the sentiment on white cardstock with Distress Ink - Stormy Sky and mounted the panel on Core'dinations navy cardstock and the whole front on to the same color of card base.
I like how my night sky turned out bright in this card, rather than dark. I love a deep, dark look, but I live in a place with such terrific night skies that sometimes they almost seem bright with stars. The Milky Way occasionally seems like it floods the sky with so much light that I could almost read by it. It isn't truly that bright, but it does put out a lot of light! [By the way, are there any other sky buffs that have been watching Comet Lovejoy? :)] Anyway, I really love the look of this colorful and bright starry sky. Hope you do, too!
Thanks for stopping in. I will have another Unity post later on. Have a lovely weekend!!!
