Welcome to my day 2 of GIU. This wee girl is where my love of Unity all began. I saw her on a random post on Facebook and I absolutely loved with her. I had never seen stamps this adorable. I found the Unity page then discovered they were stamps designed by Phyllis Harris and she had a whole collection of them. Phyllis captures the essence of childhood perfectly in her designs they are so amazing. I had only planned on buying one stamp set. Yes just one!! But when it arrived it was so nicely packaged and it stamped beautifully. So from that moment on I was hooked. I went from 1 stamp to 3 baskets full in less than a year! This stamp will always hold a special place in my heart, It is called Your Wings Exist.
I used my watercolour paints on my projects. I am no expert by any means at painting but I find them much easier to work with than alcohol markers. I am not great at colouring and the paints give a much softer finish. I find I can be too heavy handed with markers. I stamped the image using memento ink. Then I got out my paints and gave her a little ombre dress. I blended the cerise and violet paints together. I did a very light watercolor wash on the background in a few different colours. Then stamped my sentiment once it had dried.
My second project this time a tag. I used my watercolours again on this tag. The only difference is I paper pieced her dress. I also stamped the sentiment separately, then cut it out and glued it to the tag. I finished it off with some yellow ribbon and some tiny punched butterflies. I really love making tags they are just the right size to craft with and you can fit so much stuff on them.
I hope you enjoy my projects today - Thanks so much for stopping by I will see you all tomorrow.
