Courageous Lion


Hello Again

I got my new stamps in the mail yesterday and I had to make another card. I actually started this one last night and I just got around to finishing it.  I LOVE this stamp! The minute I saw it, I had to have it. Phyllis Harris has to be the BEST Children's illustrator I have ever come across. Her drawings of children are just AMAZING. The very first stamp I bought from Unity was the wee girl stamp called Your Wings Exist and I love it.  When I saw this lion stamp I was in awe!!! I love The Chronicles of Narnia and her design was based on that. This one is called Strong & Courageous Boy. There is also a girl version which I also bought and she will be getting inked soon :) 

Now on to the card :) I am still working on my colouring skills and I was not having much luck with my alcohol markers. So I decided to paint with distress ink. Yes, everything is painted apart from the flesh colour on the boy which is a copic marker. I used a small paint brush and an array of ink colours that were smooshed on to my craft sheet and mixed with a wee bit of  water. I blended some of the inks together to create other colours. The lion took me forever to paint.  I was not happy with the way he was turning out so I kept adding more and more ink until he was a nice golden orange colour. I made this card for my husband so I wanted to keep the card quite simple. I layered it on to black card then a turquoise card base.

Thanks for visiting I hope you enjoy my card xox

Unity & Misti Blog Hop

Hello My lovelies :) Welcome to the Unity and Misti blog hop! I  hope you are enjoying seeing all of the projects so far. I just had my first wee play with the Misti tool the other day. It is a very new to me tool and wow do I LOVE it!! It is awesome! Just for the simplest of things like positioning a stamp.  One time is all you need with the Misti!! I am not one of those crafters that gets my stamped images crisp first time. I usually have wasted a card or two before I end up with a perfect image. This tool totally eliminates all of that.  Here is my very first card that I made with the Misti tool and Unity stamps.  I used a stamp called  Scattered Pieces . I LOVE this stamp and the sentiments that come with it.  I positioned the feather and the sentiment at the same time on the Misti.  I totally love that you can do that too!  It lets you stamp several at once instead of just eye balling it and hoping it works out!

Hello Friends! I hope everyone is doing ok during this crazy time.  I just wanted to remind you that we are still running the Craft Stamper Challenges.  The May challenge is well underway but you still have time to come and join in.  Here is my card I made for this month's project.  I made this clean and simple floral card with Unity stamps.  I used two different kits to create this card. The jar with the flowers is from the  Strength & Wisdom  stamp set and the sentiment is from the kit called  His Words .  I kept my card really clean and just used my watercolors to colour the flowers and jar then tied a little twine around it to finish it off. If you have the time come and play along with us this month.  You can use any stamps you wish on your project.  Here is the prize we have on offer this month this fab Eileen Hull die.  All of the details of the challenge can be found on the  Craft Stamper Blog .
