Growing in Unity Blog Hop

Hello everyone! Today is a Growing in Unity Blog Hop with the GIU Gals from the last few months.  As you can see from above, be sure to comment on all the posts for your chance to win one of two Unity filled prizes!

Today, I used the Sweet Easter Gnome stamp set. There are 9 stamps in this set and I used one of the gnomes and one sentiment.  I had planned to make a second card with the other gnome but we got a puppy a week ago and she is full of energy and needs lots of attention LOL! (see pic below).

I stamped my gnome image onto a mat die cut.  He's colored in with Copic markers and I love how bright he turned out! Next I stamped the sentiment near the top.  Then I added some enamel dots (of course) But there was a lot of white space. I decided I wanted to add a bit of color with some watercolor.  So I took the backing from the stamps to be my mask and flicked on some watercolor to match the gmoe colors.

Lastly, I found this fun green patterned paper, pop dotted the top layer to the green with a bit of Trendy Twine curled up in the corner.

If you are following in order, your next stop is Shannon.  And here's the hop line up if you just stopped by my blog today:

And here's our new puppy Maisy! She will make crafting difficult for a bit but she is so cute and fun that it's ok.

Have a great day!
