Growing in Unity–Day 1

Well hello there and welcome!!

Thanks for joining me in my first day of Growing in Unity.

For any of you that have seen my work before or followed me at all, you know I like to work out of the confines of the normal stamping medium.  I’m going to do my best to show you some of the different ways you can do that this week.

How are we going to start?  Let’s try working with some metal.

TinTray

I got these metal sheets through Pick Your Plum.   They are 5x8 which I think is a nice size.  I think used VersaMark and colored embossing powder to pretty it up.  I used a orange & garnet ePs to color the poppies from the May Kom – {think Happy thoughts}.  Then for our border I used a stamp from June KoM 2010 – fly…free using a white eP.  The thing that helped me the most with this was Perfect Printing Pouch by ScraPerfect.  It really made embossing on the metal super easy.

Here’s a closeup shot so you can get better idea of what it looks like.

Thank you for joining me this today.

Come back tomorrow for Part II of this project.
