Clean & Simple...The Artist In You....

Today, Unity is releasing the Donna Downey kit....the Artist in You! This kit is amazing & artistic!
I stamped the gorgeous tree out 2x for this one and cut out the green one and layered it on top. I like the dimension this added to the tree.
Here is a super clean & simple card. Just a little white gel pen for detail and a few cut out hearts from some Bo Bunny paper. This card was inspired by some Jillibean Soup paper, that small strip across the center.
What an amazing sentiment! I went a bit crazy with my Stampin Up markers! :)
I had a hard time capturing a photo of this one. This card also used Bitty Backgrounds. The sentiment was stamped on the base and then again on a piece of acetate that was adhered to the card. I added some brown crackle paint along the edge.

Be sure to check the Unity Stamp Company blog for more links to inspiration! :)

Have a wonderful Thursday!! :)
