Hello! I am so excited because today Unity Stamp Company and My Sweet Petunia (the maker of the MISTI) are teaming up for a fun hop!
The MISTI is a necessity in my art room! I simply do not stamp without it! I love it for basic stamping, creating multiples, overstamping and much more. It has eliminated crooked sentiments and inky smudges on artwork made by accidentally letting the acrylic block touch the paper (cannot tell you how many times that happened to me). I love using the MISTI to get solid coverage stamping on mixed media backgrounds by overstamping several times precisely in the same place. I love the MISTI so much, I have two!
I am a big fan of Unity's high-quality red rubber images & sentiments and have begun quite a collection! I follow Unity Stamp Co. regularly on their social media sites so I was delighted to be able to create for this hop!
Today I am featuring projects using Unity's May Sentiment Kit, Happy Snail Mail. This is such a fun kit!!! I will get tons of use out of the belated greetings as I am always late! For today's projects, I placed the adorable mushroom stamp in one of my MISTIs and used my other MISTI to change out sentiments.
On the following projects, I stamped the image and watercolored with distress inks (along with an Elegant Writer pen on the first two). After they were dry I overstamped them again in precisely the same place with the MISTI to bring back the crisp lines on the image.
The dots on the mushroom are the perfect fit for translucent sequins!
It was so fun to create a magical world with distress inks and water for this happy snail!
For this last project:
1) I stamped with distress ink.
Spritzed with water to allow the ink to move then heat dried
2) Stamped over the top with black ink
Now that you have checked out samples using the amazing products from Unity Stamp Co and My Sweet Petunia, let's talk prizes!!!
