Well, Hello there! I've been looking forward to this week for months! Ok, I've been full of anxiety thinking about this week for months! Hahaha!
I'm proud to be representing Unity Stamps this week. They're a small family business and know how to take care of their customers and make amazing stamps. The quality of their product is truly the best I have ever used. Really!
Remember several years back. when Chevron prints were all the rage? Everything was Chevron. Everyone wanted Chevron. I'm pretty particular about trendy things, but I was in love with the Chevrons. I sought out background stamps with the zig-zagged peaks all over it, nothing had me grabbing my wallet until I saw Unity's Chevron background designed by Jillibean Soup. It was exactly what I was seeking, and my very first Unity purchase.
Naturally, Its only fitting to start my GIU week with it.
I make a lot of goofs in my creative process, most of my favorite pieces came to be from a happy accident. My background colors were applied while playing around with my diy gelli plate. I had put the paints on too heavily and the important Chevron details were smooshed. Oh, by the way, I also never throw potentials away. Never. Favorites!
Back to the card details, I needed a rainbow card for my little neighbor who will be turning 5 next month. So, I dug out my smooshed Chevron, and used my MISTI to align the stamp on the painted surface. I inked it up with white craft ink. It was looking good. Lots of texture showing from the paint and ink mixture. Then, I sprinkled Stampendeous Stardust embossing powder all over it. OOOOH! LOVE! Sparkly Rainbow Chevrons! Win Win. Of course the only thing fitting for rainbows and sparkle is a Unicorn! Unity's "I am Unicorn" kit is exactly what I had in mind. The Unicorn is flocked, all fuzzy and soft, and her mane sparkles from shimmery gel pen inks. Finally, her horn is very regal and strong, gilded in silver glitter.
Plenty of Pandas Set. Lastly, I sprinkled in some glittered dots for interest.
