GIU Day 5 - Get Out The Sun Glasses

Hello.  Welcome.  This week I am growing in Unity.  I have shared a project every day this this week featuring Unity Stamp Company stamps.  This is my final GIU post and I would like to thank you for your visits and your mega-awesome comments.  You rock.  I'd also like to thank Unity for giving me the opportunity to share my Unity creations with you, and for giving you the chance to win a Unity grab bag.  Just leave a comment on this post for a chance to win one of two fantastic Unity grab bags.  Hugz

Yesterday I did cool blues for Christmas.  Today I wanted to go bright, in the hopes of encouraging the summer.  And today we have sunshine, so maybe it worked!!  I also wanted to use one of my favourite Unity Stamps.  I know, there are so many, but in the end I went with The Strength She Needs, definitely one of my bestest favourites.



See, I was serious about the sunglasses!!  I made my background using triangles of neon paper.  I stamped, embossed and fussy cut the girl and coloured her with distress ink and a red Promarker.  I stamped the sentiment using black Staz-on.  Not sure of the kit this comes from because I got it in a Unity grab bag.  I thought this might make a modern and alternative confirmation card.  Good advice for a young woman.

Thanks for dropping by.  Don't forget to leave a comment for a chance to win a Unity grab bag.  If you have missed my other posts this week they are here:  
Good luck.  I will announce my winners next week. 

If you hop over to Lisa's blog she is also GIU this week, and has two grab bags to giveaway too.  
Just in case you don't know there are two GIU gals every week in 2017, each giving away 2 fabtastic Unity grab bags.  If you want to find them you can join the fb
