Good morning! I’m back today for the weekly Monday feature for me here on the Unity Stamp Company Blog! So happy to be featuring the AMAZING Unity Kit of the Month set on Mondays here on the blog. These kits are always AMAZING, and they hold a special place in my heart since they were the first thing I purchased from Unity, and what got me hooked on Unity to begin with. Who DOESN’T love getting a happy package of stamps in the mail every month, right? And these kits just keep getting better and better. You can read all the details and info to sign up HERE, and see this month’s kit as well.
Today I’m sharing a simple watercolored card using the absolutely DARLING little strawberry image from the June kit!
Here in Northwestern Washington state, we are JUST starting to get the first couple of berries off of our strawberry bushes. Of course, it has been so rainy and cold, that they are pretty slow – but so yummy and worth the wait! So I knew when I saw this image, I just HAD to create a card with it!
I stamped the image on watercolor paper using Versafine Onyx Black ink so it would work with watercolors. I used my MISTI to stamp several times to get a good impression on the textured cardstock. I also added a sentiment at the same time.
Then, I just had fun watercoloring in the image – super fun! It is an easy image for watercoloring too, which is awesome. Once I was done, I trimmed it down, matted the image with some white cardstock, then mounted it directly on a very soft pink cardbase. Love how soft and sweet this card turned out!
Thanks so much for stopping by today! Hope to see you back here next week – have a wonderful week!
