Hoppin' May away...

Can't believe that May is almost over.
 
With the end of the month comes your last chance to join the Unity Layers of Life Art Stamp or Kit of the Month subscriptions to receive this month's offerings.  Just look at these beautiful kits.

If you're interested (seriously, who wouldn't be?) then just click on the picture to be taken to all you need to know to sign up.
 
So today I've made a little card for you using the May KOTM.  I just love all of the girly images in this kit and I've paired one and a sentiment with a bit of water coloring using my distress inks.
 
 
 
 
I also stamped the image with distress ink as it bleeds out more with the water color - leaving a less defined outline.  I like the look.  The sentiment is stamped on watercolor paper, trimmed, and popped up.  I finished with a hand-drawn border and a few little matching sequins.

Don't forget that Unity has some great things for you this weekend.  Trust me when I say that that this grab bag is "crazy-generous"!  You can start shopping at Noon (CDT).

 
 
 
So continue hopping...on to Laurel.
