>>> Growing In Unity - Day 1 <<<



Way back in March, I signed up for this event as I had just discovered Unity stamps and wanted the opportunity to showcase stamps that I had bought. Fast forward the months and a huge collection of Unity stamps, it's now my turn this week!

I received my August KOTM set while on vacation in Singapore and as a result, haven't played with it yet. Hence, I decided to take a closer look and will highlight images from this particular set today.
This set is packed with such fun images.

I had a look at the SCS Unity forum and combined my card with Sep KOTM challenge which was to use the following colours: green, orange, purple and black. Here's my effort:

The background was sponged using Tim Holtz distressed inkpads in Marmalade and Dusty Concord. It was then spritzed with water to give it a mottled effect. It's actually more orangy than yellow in real life.

Thanks for dropping by and leaving comments. At the end of the week, I'll be drawing a winner to win a free Unity single stamp of your choice! TTFN!
