The Outlawz Songs & Rhymes Challenge

The Song inspiration this week is Somewhere Over The Rainbow!

I die cut the Memory Box Butterfly Swell die and layered over a rainbox color designer paper.  The sentiment is from Serendipity stamps.

House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge #266 Flower Power!

I created this sweet Mudpie card for the HM&FMC #266 Flower Power theme!

I created 3 rosette flowers, layered them together and added the Mudpie Munch 02 stamped image on top.  The image was stamped onto kraft cardstock and colored using Prisma Colored Pencils; used a circle punch to punch out the image.  Embellished using felt leaves and nestled a small paper flower between the leaves.

Entering my card in the HM&FMC #266 found HERE.

Growing In Unity Day 5

Welcome to Day 5 of my GIU posts!
Wow!  This week has gone by way too fast!

The theme today is "anything goes."

colored using Copic Markers

using the black magic technique - images stamped using white pigment ink on black cardstock and colored using Colored Pencils

tone on tone cardstock and ink stamping - image colored using Colored Pencils

image background created using Crayola Markers scribbled on acetate, spritzed with water and then smooshed over image 
to give a watercolor wash

I hope that you have enjoyed viewing/commenting on my GIU cards this week.  I have certainly enjoyed reading your comments and especially enjoyed having the GIU opportunity.

It will take a few days to determine and announce the winners of the two Unity Prize packages.  Winners will be announced on my blog and also on the GIU Facebook page.  Good luck to each of you in the draw!
