Unity Stamp WCMD challenges found here. This is the first time I've played along with them, because I was recently given a few of their adorable stamps by a thoughtful & sweet friend :) Unity stamps are required for these challenges, so my cards don't have sentiments, but I hope the challenge police will go easy on me :)
This is for the Unity WCMD #2 challenge to add 2 different textures to your card. I loved this adorable chick with the matching umbrella and boots, so I added texture by layering 2 SB die cuts with white & pink cardstock, and adding some old "raindrops" that I bought at a craft show years ago. I don't even know who made them, as they were out of the original wrapper. The ribbon was from my stash, and the pink striped dsp is from the Crate Paper pretty party paper pad. (say that 10 times)
Unity's WCMD challenge #3 to use embossing. I heat embossed the image and dry embossed the dsp, so I think I got the challenge covered. The butterfly was first embossed with gold ep, and then I used a versamark pen to fill in the body and wing centers, and embossed again to fill in those spaces with gold. The rest of the butterfly was done with turquoise stickles and 4 gold square brads to complete the ATC center. The background is gold glitter paper from the Mariposa DCWV stack, and I embossed it with an ef from the CB decorative tiles set.
Unity #8 challenge which is to use the colors of cream, brown, olive, and pumpkin. I started by making a herringbone background with SU dsp and cardstock, then layered it with chocolate chip. The fancy scalloped border was done with a SU! punch. The flowers were masked and stamped 3 times on cream colored linen cardstock and colored with markers. I used a labels 10 SB die to cut them, and added some creamy mini pearls from Pizzazz Aplenty. The orange trim and cream card stock were from my stash.
It was fun playing along with some of their WCMD challenges and I may get time to create a few more since they don't have to be completed until October 20th! Check out all of the challenge details here.
Thanks for stopping by and have a fantastic day!
