Unity Sketch #7

With school starting, the university town of Sackville will shortly be filling up with first-time and returning students. This time of year I like to make cards that can be used to remind people that they're missed :)

The sketch from Unity with its butterflies prompted me to pull out some previously uninked Unity stamps, and some inks that I haven't used in a while either - my Kaleidacolor pads. Ignore the pink/blue edges - the card refused to stand out on a white background so I tucked the nearest coloured papers behind it.


Supplies: Kaleidacolor inks (Fiesta and Celebration); Unity stamps; scrap rainbow stripe stickers; rhinestones from Dollarama

I cut apart the triple butterfly stamp from this itty bitty set  and inked them up with the different strips in the rainbow pads, overlapping just a little bit. The sentiment stamp is one that I scored for free a while back in one of Unity's awesome weekend sales. 

Here's the challenge graphic - I love those colours too, so I may have another card up my sleeve.



That's it for the moment. I have an afternoon of lawn mowing & lawn lounging ahead of me :) Perhaps some more of that vanilla vodka in my Coke Zero too ;)

xoxo,
Jessi

I have understandably been unable to make my normal visits to my friends. This morning I woke up and had breakfast and came in to my computer with the intent of catching up with my loaded inbox. Every mail that I clicked on would not open. Then I noticed this post from you was blinking madly. I tried to click here and, walla! Isn't that curious?

Your card is SO bright and happy, Jessi! Love it!

Then light dawned as I read to the end. Ah Ha! But, of course! I forgot I had my computer programmed to jam any incoming mail except for those which contain the word "vodka!" I can be there just as you're done mowing. Shame about that part, but I'll bring my own chilled glass! Thanks! It's just what the doctor ordered!! xxoo Darnell
