Unity WCD Challenges 6,7,8

Hello everyone, today I thought I would share the last of the Unity World Cardmaking Day challenges in one post. 

Challenge 6 was all about using a non border stamp to create a border.  I decided to use the snowman stamp from MLS/Unity.


First I stamped three of the snowman standing next to each other and then stamped them again on some scrap paper which I used as a mask.  I placed these over the front snowmen before I stamp another one over the top.  This way you get the layered look.

Challenge 7 was challenging you to get out your colours.  Having just received some of the Kuretake Kurecolors I decided to try them out.  I loved the way they blended and gave some really cool effects when mixing the colours. 


Here I used the 'Live, Life, Laugh Girl' stamp and gave the top a rainbow top using the pens.

And the final Challenge 8 was a colour challenge to use Cream, Brown, Olive and Pumpkin as the primary colour combo    Needless to say I used the mushroom stamp again and teamed it with one of the Papermania Capsule collections.  The colours suited this challenge perfectly.  I also decided to use the technique that I did for the MLS website and paper pieced the mushroom.


I embossed the olive card with a Papermania Embossing folder before adding it to the card.

I have really enjoyed playing along with these challenges and I really must get some more of the Unity Stamps, don't you think!! 

Enjoy the rest of your weekend
