Hip Hop, Owls Rock!

It's Thursday which means we are hip-hopping the day away with Unity Stamp Co!

Today I am using a few stamps from the Unity Kit of the month, Fly Free. Stamps from this kit on this card are those sweet little owls, the heart border behind them, and the "so grateful" sentiment...


As is my norm, I used watercolor pencils to color these images, but because I was using them on top of kraft colored cardstock rather than white, I used a MUCH lighter hand with the water than I normally would because I did not want to wash out any of the color vibrancy.


Supplies used:
*Unity Stamp Co.
*October Afternoon paper collection
*Fiskars border punch
*corner rounder
*watercolor pencils
*Basic Grey ribbon

Now you need to hop on over to Tanis' incredibly inspirational blog...
