GIU Blog Hop


Welcome to my leg of the Giving in Unity Blog Hop! You should be arriving from the talented Brittany Morgan's blog  For this blog hop we were given the "Need a Squeeze" stamp of the week at Unity Stamp Co. This stamp is perfect for the approach of summer. It really makes me think of Lemonade and cool drinks. I thought I'd try out some more of the techniques at the Watercoloring for Card Makers class. I painted a color wash background in blue, I was thinking of a cool drink, and stamped and painted the different types of citrus for the stamped image.

Head on over to Dona's blog next and see what she has up her sleeve.
