Friends Of Unity November 2019 Giving Thanks


Giving Thanks
Friends Of Unity
November 2019

On a thankful note... I used this giant sentiment "Grateful" from Unity's September 2018 Kit of The Month. It just says it all! I picked some random fall colors from my mini Tim Holtz distress ink stash and smooched them in a row onto my glass media mat. You can seriously do this with any ink! A quick spritz with some water made for a watercolor look when I picked up the ink with the stamp. There was enough ink on the glass mat to stamp this sentiment over and over again until the watercolor paper was filled. A little ink goes a long way!


Faber Castell texture gems, with a few drops of water added, gold splatters added sparkle! This was a quick and easy card.


On a not so serious note... What's cookin!? Or should I say, "What's shakin?" It's a turkey from Build A Turkey! Looks like his feather's have been plucked and he is already in the pot! Brutus Monroe Inspiration Box papers were the perfect colors for his feather's. The sequins in the shaker are from Brutus Monroe too. I got the pot from a Unity grab bag.


Oh no! He's not happy with being in the pot and is trying to get away! ...yeah, can't blame him. I'd be running too. LOL! Now that he is out, you can see his featherless body is colored with prisma colored pencils.


So I guess I should finish this blogpost off with saying something I'm grateful for right?! Well... I'd have to say,..."YOU!" Totally grateful for you and the continued love you show FOU. You make blogging fun and worthwhile! 

Leave a comment below telling me which card is your favorite and what you are grateful for and you'll be entered into a random drawing to win a grab bag of sentiments from me. ( shipping to u.s. residents only please)
