GIU Day 1 - Lots of hugs

Hello everyone! This week I'm the 'Growing In Unity' gal for Unity Stamps. This means that my posts this week are all about Unity Stamps and their lovely stamps. Don't forget to leave a comment on my posts too, because at the end of the week I'll pick two winners out of all the comments who'll win 25 random stamps from Unity!

Hallo allemaal! Deze week ben ik de 'Growing In Unity Gal' bij Unity Stamps. Dat betekent dat ik deze week elke dag een berichtje plaats waarbij ik stempels van Unity Stamp gebruik. Vergeet niet om ook nog een reactie achter te laten op mijn berichtjes want aan het einde van de week kies ik twee winnaars die 25 (willekeurige) stempels van Unity Stamps kunnen winnen!

I'm starting this week with some watercolors, embossing powder, sequins and of course the Unity Stamps. I stamped this flower from the 'Beautiful - inside and out' kit with black archival ink on watercolor paper. I worked really quick and added some clear embossing powder right after I stamped the image. The archival ink dries pretty quick but I was fast enough to emboss the image.

Now the image is embossed it's pretty easy to color it. I used Gansai Tambi watercolors which are very vibrant. After coloring the image I die-cut it with a die from My Favorite Things and I added the sentiment stamp (from the May Hope Sustain You sentiment kit). I used a pearl card and some pink patterned paper as a base for my card, I added a pink/white bakers twine and some sequins to finish my card!

Ik begin deze week met waterverf, embossing poeder, sequins en natuurlijk de stempels van Unity Stamps. Ik heb de bloem gebruikt uit de 'Beautiful - inside and out' kit, ik heb hem gestempeld met zwarte archival ink waarna ik er snel een transparante embossing poeder overheen heb gedaan. De archival ink droogt snel dus je moet niet te lang wachten want dan blijft de embossingpoeder niet meer zitten.

Na het embossen van de stempel is het vrij makkelijk om het plaatje in te kleuren. Ik heb Gansai Tambi waterverf gebruikt, deze waterverf heeft mooie heldere kleuren. Na het verven heb ik nog een tekst toegevoegd uit de May Hope Sustain You kit. Ik heb een parelmoer-kleurige basis voor mijn kaart gebruikt. Om de kaart af te maken heb ik nog een mooi roze achtergrondpapier een stukje touw en wat sequins toegevoegd.

I especially like how you added sequins. I have some, and never use them. Nice job.
