random fun stuff...
It's time for another Unity hop!

So, totally random and off topic, but guess what I found in my yard this week...
Yup... check out this mother-to-be! I'm so excited to see little 'humming babies' (as my friend calls them).
Ok... back to stamping...
This week, I decided to play around with an idea I had and made a canvas chalkboard for my niece. I started out with a canvas board that I covered with several coats of chalkboard paint. After giving it plenty of time to dry, I used a stencil and texture paste to give the edges some dimension.
I sprayed the paste with various Distress inks to give them a nice bright color... I then used the Faber-Castell PITT artist pen (white 101) to ink up the little butterfly in Unity's Gina and Me kit... it stamped beautifully over the chalkboard paint! I then sprayed some more distress ink over the stamped images so they would be a little less stark white.
Of course, I had to test it out... The chalk wrote and erased beautifully! (don't mind the bad handwriting.... it isn't my strongest point.)
This sweet set is brand new... And I LOVE it! It is just in time too... I'm in need of a baby card for a family member! YAY!
(see that little heart charm hanging off the bow? It's actually an old earring.. I lost it's mate years and years ago, but kept this one because I loved it. It finally has a new life, and I'm super happy about that!)
I ADORE this set! It's absolutely perfect for super simple (yet stunning) watercoloring...
Check it out....
