Happy Sunday, everyone!
Today I am joining in on the Growing in Unity Blog Hop.
This hop is just for fun, and is a great way to reconnect with the Spring Growing in Unity Girls and share our love of Unity Stamps!
Today I have chosen to use a friendship stamp designed for Unity Stamps by Angie Blom. It is from the March release, called Unity Girls.
I'm a huge fan of the Angie Blom and her Angie Girl series. They are so much fun to color and have wonderful sentiments.
I have been loving watercolors lately, and recently just got a few of the Prima Confections watercolor tins, so I chose to use them for today's project.
I enjoy no-line coloring and watercolor, so I stamped my image in a very pale gray ink, so the lines would hide beneath my coloring.
I love to paint in the hint of faces on these face-less Angie girls. Here's a closeup of just how simplistic it really is. It's an optical illusion of sorts. Just enough shadow and highlight forces the eye to subconciously fill in the rest of the face.
I added a quick light background wash and once it was dry. I used a stitched die to trim down my watercolor panel a bit.
Before adhering it to my layered card base I stamped my sentiment in Versafine Black Onyx ink.
