My UNITY Day 3 post

Here's day 3 card.  I saw this technique (sorry, I'm  not exactly where I saw it) and wanted to try.

 I think this turned out great.  Using Vellum and using a stylus on the back side to make it look like the white coloring of this little girl.

The background base isn't showing through as nice as I'd like, but I'm still working on blending those distress inks.  And I really should have put 4 brads into the vellum I think.

I make a lot of Thinking of You cards,, and this seems to be one of the most perfect images for that card.  And personally I love the fact that I don't have to color in the face.  I'm not good at that yet.  I have to admit that I've signed up quite a while ago for a Kit and Clowder class but haven't taken it yet,

I'm so glad my week is this current one, as I'm about ready to start in on a HUGE kitchen remodel.  I'm hoping that being able to retreat into my craft room will help with a lot of the stress of this.  I can hardly wait for it though.

Well, I hope to see you guys tomorrow and Friday with 2 more of my cards.  Don't forget to comment, as there will be a prize at the end of the week!!

I love the look of the white. I had no idea it was a stylus and not white pencil or chalk, so thanks for another technique to try.

Dear Terri, this is such a sweet card! I like the effect of the stylus that you did, I will have to try it! Thanks for sharing!

This is really pretty! I love the muted tone of the BG and think
it lends itself to the image (which is darling!).
Good luck on the remodel ...

I love the vellum look. Good luck with the kitchen remodel. That might inspire some amazing cards while you are cloistered in your Craftroom.

I haven't played with vellum in ages. Now, where's it hiding? Haha!
The image you chose is perfect for this type of card, you're right!
