I almost forgot to blog...

My wonderful Mom is coming for a visit tomorrow for almost 2 full weeks and I am knee deep in cleaning to try to get my house presentable (being the only adult around, I have let things slide a bit *eek*) So I totally forgot that I had a blog post all planned for today.

As I mentioned yesterday, I had several Unity customers request me to use specific stamps on my projects that I was working on over the weekend (I had put the plea out there to inspire me and it worked.) Ky was my first responder and she requested that I use this stamp from the first Unity Store kom (100% Happy... you can still find it for sale HERE!)

Like Ky, this stamp totally reminds me of the State Fair as does this gorgeous balloon paper from Webster's Pages so I decided to put them together.

The difficult part of this project was getting the style of that modern ferris wheel to match the style of the old looking paper. I did that (I think) by layering several other stamps in the background of the ferris wheel (vintage postcard, the swirl from 100% Happy, and Grandma's Button) and lots of inking.
Supplies used:
*Unity Stamp Co. 100% Happy
*Unity Stamp Co. Vintage Postcard
*Unity Stamp Co. Grandma's Button
*Webster's Pages paper (balloons and cream swirl)
*MME paper (red)
*Nestabilities Labels
*watercolor pencils

I'll be back tomorrow with another piece from the list...
1. Plant a Tree (I need to get this stamp!)
2. Ferris Wheel from 100% Happy (artwork done )
3. quote (artwork done )
4. patterned flower from Oct store kit (artwork done)
5. dress form from Oct store kit (artwork done )
6. First Unity stamp I ever got...next on my list to create!

So, if there is something you want to see stamped up, let me know! You can leave me a comment here or drop me an email... snowchris_01@yahoo.com

That is a great card and the vintage postcard did work for tying everything together!

I'm rather new here. If you haven't already done a card with the peacock from Sept KOTM I'd like to see what you come up with.
