Unity Be Inspired Challenge

Hello My Crafty Friends

Hope you are all having a lovely weekend. I was playing about with paints last night and decided to make a card for the Unity Be Inspired Challenge. The colours are sooooo pretty. I love the different palettes they come up with each month. So these are the colours I had to work with.



I am totally getting into painting lately I bought loads of cheap acrylics just to play around with. It is so not my thing and I am not much of a painter but I LOVE getting messy with it. The stamps I used in my card today are from Unity of course they are called Wishing you Joy & Miracles Happen.

I started out with some kraft card and embossed the flowers with white embossing powder. I then used my paints to colour the flower heads different colours. While the paint was still slightly wet I sprinkled white glitter all over the flowers to give it a touch of sparkle. I added some tiny butterflies and mounted it on to  white card then a turquoise card base that I had scored. Finally I used Broken China Distress Ink for the sentiment to stamp with and placed it below the flowers along with some gemstones.



I hope you enjoy my card ~ Thanks for visiting xox
