Growing In Unity Blog Hop!!

Welcome to the Growing in Unity Blog Hop!
So excited to be part of this fun group featuring the amazing stamps from Unity Stamp Co!

On with the fun....

Since it is October and Halloween is right around the corner I thought it would be fun to share a couple cards made using some of my most loved Halloween stamps from Unity.

Yes, the gang's all here! Tierra Jackson is one of my most favorite Unity artists, I love her take on Halloween. Aren't they just the coolest? I absolutely love them and have fun creating with each one. 

Today I thought the spiders should be purple, the Mummy is all dressed in his best wrap, Frank and his lady love are dolled up for the party and of course the Count is spiffed up in his natty red suit (to hide any dribbles of course).

To create this card I stamped and masked each character before stamping the next (starting with Frank in the center).  

I then spent some time and colored each using a variety of colored pencils and finishing up the background with watercolor.

Unity Stamps: SpiderMummy, Frank, Bride of Frank, and Count

I was having so much fun I decided to make a second card featuring Spider.

To create this card I stamped Entanglement on a piece of white cardstock using VersaMark ink.

I then embossed with white MBossing powder.

I used Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolors to add color.

Spider was also stamped with VersaMark but then embossed with black MBossing powder.

He too was colored using watercolors. 

Once dry he was fussy cut and added to the card along with the sentiment and Limited Edition sequins from Sparkle Blends.
