Keep The Wild In You

I'm so saddened to say this is my last day as a Growing In Unity girl, for Unity Stamp Company.  I've had such a blast and I wish it didn't have to end! (I wonder if I wrote a letter to Santa, wishing for a spot on the Unity DT, if he'd be kind enough to help me out?! Doesn't hurt to try, right?!)

I cannot say enough about Unity Stamp Company.  Their stamp quality and customer service is fabulous!  Each order you place, is made just for you. You don't find many companies that cook your order just for you. Whitney's husband, Nick, also makes custom name stamps, for use on the backs of your cards - With the Same great Unity quality!  If you haven't given Unity a chance yet, please check them out and support this family owned business that prides itself on quality!

Today's card, is my favorite, by far. I went out of my comfort zone and made my own background, to bring out my "wild side!" I created the background by using alcohol inks on glossy cardstock. Then, I stamped on the background panel, in black with stamps from the Keep Wild set by Unity Stamp Company. I used the Amalgam ink, from Gina K, for my stamping. (LOVE this ink, by the way!)  The sentiment, from the same set, has been mounted on black and fussy cut. I wanted to do something different with the sentiment and make it stand out - Cuz, like, I'm trying to get wild, right?! I tore up some gauze I had in my First aid Kit, inked it up with the Gina K ink and placed it between the pink panel and the alcohol ink panel. I was trying to add a "wild" element, to go with the card theme.  I have to say, it was my first time using gauze on a card, But, I think I rather like it!

This is your last chance to comment on all of my Unity posts for this week, for your chance to win a grab bag! Two winners will be chosen, so, what are you waiting for, leave me some love, baby!

I want to say thank you, again, to Unity Stamp Company, for giving me the opportunity to be a Growing In Unity girl, this week. I've had so much fun and have loved every minute of it! Thank you, also, Unity, for giving me two stamp grab bags to giveaway to two lucky commenters on this week's post!
