I haven't played along with the Unity Stamp Company Challenge for a while but I needed to make a card for my sons speech therapist and I new what stamps I wanted to use so I decided to give the card sketch a go. Here is what I came up with:
Terri Burson at wavingmywand for reminding me that I had these beauties!
For the card base I used watercolor paper as well and sprayed it with a yellow Glimmer mist and an Sunset Dylysions spray. After that dried I stamped Unity's Whimsy Border with an orange gelato on the bottom and splattered some orange watercolor up in the top left corner.
The sentiment banner is where I had some problems. The sentiment is from another Unity KOTM called Let Love Grow. Eventually I got the embossing to come out clear after about 3 failed attempts. Then it was crooked on the black paper and that bothered me so I cut it down and then cut it down some more until I was left with a very small piece of paper that didn't look right under the oval. After playing around with a lot of options I just moved it off to the side and added the orange ribbon up in the opposite corner and called it done.
The whole card has a beautiful shimmer to it. Here are a couple of close ups to try to capture that.
