“Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, "I will try again tomorrow.” --Mary Anne Radmacher
Welcome to Unity Stamp Company's kit of the month blog hop. If you are not a Unity KOM subscriber, then why are you waiting? I love my kits of the month and the stamps are beautifully made. So come join us in the fun. If you've made it here from Jess's adorable blog, then you are right on track. For each of these cards and notepads, I used the April Kit of the Month, my personal favorite so far.
The first item is a note pad holder. I used elegant eggplant and pink pirouette cardstock. The image is stamped on some SU Designer paper scraps I had on hand. Then I used my markers to watercolor in the details. I stamped the sentiment on pink cardstock and then used the leaves from the bird as a background.
The second item is a card that involved a lot of paperpiecing. I used some scraps of SU designer paper to stamp the dress form, once on each sid of the paper. Then I cut it out and used the reverse side for the belt. The stand is cut out of basic gray paper, and the bird was stamped and cut out and then woven into the base of the dress form.
This one is also a notepad holder and uses a bit of emboss resist for the medallion on the front. I stamped the flower in versamark on pink pirhouette paper and then embossed with iridescent ice. Then I used a sponge dauber and daubed inks over the top to make it pop. The center is a rhinestone brad.
