Growing in Unity Day One

Hello! Welcome to my week of Growing in Unity. I have two cards to share today.
Stamp Set: Unity Stamp Company All About Dad
Ink: VersaFine Onyx Black Pigment Ink
Paper: Creative Memories Nature's Whisper Paper Album Kit
Card Base: Recollections 4 in x 5.5 Card Pack

I made this card for my dad for Father's Day.

Stamp Set: Unity Stamp Company Harmony Girl
Ink: Archival Jet Black Pigment Ink
Cut with Decorative edged scissors
Colored with Various Colored Pencil Sets
Accented with: Gelly Roll White and Metallic Silver pens to give it a plastic/wet look
Background Paper & Paper Piecing: Authentique 6 x 6 Latest & Greatest Heavy Weight Cardstock
Image Background Paper: Creative Memories Nature's Whisper Paper Album Kit
Foam Adhesive from Queen & Company
I attended a Card Shaker Kit workshop at Stamp and Scrapbook Expo in Mesa, AZ last September and the extra foam from the kits came in handy for the sentiment!
Card Base: Recollections 4 in x 5.5 Card Pack
I matted the stamped image to separate it from the background paper. That's all I have to share today. Be sure to come back tomorrow and everyday this week for a chance to win a grab bag from Unity Stamp Company!

Great job of highlighting the Harmony Girl. I love how you used decorative scissors to cut out the image and then mat on light cardstock. Beautiful.
