Growing in Unity Blog Hop


Hi!

Welcome to the Growing in Unity Blog Hop!  I was so excited when Unity Stamps asked me to join in the fun.  And I'm so glad to have you here.  Hopefully you came here from Tracy's blog.  If you didn't, you can find the complete list of participants at the bottom of this post.  You don't want to miss a stop.  One lucky commenter will be selected to win a month of Stamp of the Week (SOTW) stamps!  

We were given this week's SOTW stamp to work with: Winter Forest.  I fell in love with the trees when I took the stamps out of the package.  My first thought was to make a window card (and I still may!)...then I went a completely other direction.  Check it out!


Aren't these little canvases cute?  When I found them at a local discount store, I didn't know what I was going to do with them.  Originally, I thought they would be fun for my kids to draw on.  But when I saw the stamps, I knew they would be a perfect fit.  So I grabbed some watercolors to create a chilly background.


I used some Momento ink and the same watercolors to color in the the trees.


Last bit was to add a little sparkle with some stars and a silver pen.  And there you go!  My first Holiday decoration of the season.  


Thank you for visiting.  If you aren't a follower, I would love it if you would be.  Don't forget to comment along the hop for a chance to win a month of SOTW stamps!  As promised, here are all the stops:
