Hello there crafty friend!
Today is a fun day for a hop... it's National Scrapbook Day and even though I'm not a scrapbooker... I know all of us cardmakers and scrapbookers have a love of all things crafty!! So what better way to celebrate than with a blog hop!!
Today for our Friends of Unity blog hop we are sharing our Favorite Angie Girl or Guy!! So fun!! And naturally I'm going to start with my favorite kit... the one that got me hooked on Unity Stamp Company in the first place...
Dream of Being!! Isn't she gorgeous! I did a little No Line Coloring with this beautiful girl and I really love how it turned out. I made a video of me coloring and assembling this card, but I don't quite have it edited and ready to go so I will add it here when it's done and also share on Facebook. Until then... here's a list of the Copic markers I used to color this card:
Skin / Lips / Eye ~ E0000, E000, E00, E11, R00, R20, N0, N4, B16
Hair ~ E50, E51, E53, E55, N0, N1, N4, N6
Clothes ~ B0000, B000, B41, Colorless Blender
Cup ~ C00, C1, C3, N0, N1
I just HAD to use the Coffee Lovers paper along with this beauty... they were made for each other! My last little touch was some white enamel dots from Gina Marie Designs.
Here is the video of the No Line Coloring with the Dream of Being Girl...
My second card is a fun technique that I love to do... Copic Coloring on Kraft card stock!! And again I paired it up with some Unity papers. The Vintage Textiles papers, unfortunately, are exclusive to one of the Whit Kit's... but I just loved the lacy floral paper and had to use it for this card!
I also used the papers to paper piece Jane Girl... she really pops! I added a little shadow to the patterned paper with some warm grey Copic markers. Here's a list of the Copic markers I used on this card:
Skin ~ E0000, E000, E00, E11
Hair ~ E09, E15, E97
Shadow on Shirt ~ W00, W2
Outline ~ B0000, B000
And to finish off this card, I added some Nuvo Gloss White Crystal Drops.
My last card features the absolutely gorgeous Daisy Girl... she's an absolute MUST HAVE for us Daisy lovers!! I love this kit so much!! And she is so much fun to paper piece! I also masked the image and did a little blending with Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink over the Wire Basket Stencil by Carta Bella and then a little Tattered Rose over the Mini Sketch Grid stencil by The Crafters Workshop. I love to mix and match stencils... it can change up your background every time!
I used the following Copic markers to color this beauty:
Skin ~ E0000, E000, E00, E11
Hair ~ E00, E11, E23, E27
Blouse ~ R00, R21, R32
Daisies ~ C00, C0, C1, C3, Y06, Y11, Y35
To finish up this card, I added a bit of white gel pen to the dots and also some Nuvo Gloss White and English Mustard Crystal drops. And that's it for me this time!! I hope that you've enjoyed the cards I've shared today!!
