Here is a card using Unity toner cards for foiling (in collab with Thermoweb).  I made this for an insta hop a bit back but knowing this photo challenge was coming up and how perfect it would be.  I didn't go with the colors just the presents concept as my inspiration.

Just Us Girls Trend Week

This week for Just Us Girls we are in Trend Week and our hostess Sue picked NO LINE WATERCOLORING as our challenge.  I know there are ways people stamp lightly and image and watercolor so you don't see the lines.  I know people use those 2 step stamps.  I tried both but it wasn't working out how I wanted.  I decided to take a  solid stamp ink it with water based ink and wet to create a lovely watercolor with no lines!  I hope that's acceptable :-)  I actually really liked how this came out.  I used 2 stamp kits from Unity Stamp Co.
