GIU Day 5

Hello.  Welcome.  This week I am Growing in Unity.  Leave a comment on this and my other GIU posts for a chance to win a Unity Stamp Co. grab bag of 25 stamps.  

Today is Remembrance Day.  This seemed appropriate.  



I've used First Love, First Hero and part of the sentiment Remember This.  The poppies I watercoloured with distress ink and a black sharpie pen for the centers.  The black and white background was made using a stencil for the circle pattern and then the edge of some scrap card with black and white acrylic paint.  

Thanks for dropping by.  Don't forget to leave a comment for a chance to win some Unity Stamps.  I will draw 2 winners Monday.  Hugz
