(2015 c5) Unity Thank You

Today I started with a watercolored background. Next with Versamark Ink I stamped the Butterfly with The Unity  set  called You give Me Butterflies (I’m not sure if it is discontinued because I can not find it on their site right now) I heat embossed with Carnelian EP. (I love this color)OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERANext I heat embossed with clear EP so that the yellow of the ground would show throughOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA Unity’s Tattered Chicken Wire .   Since it is hard to see in the picture, there is a closeup of the wire on the right.  Then I added some splotches of greenish blue watercolor over some of the chicken wire… Next I inked up Unity’s Heavy Chevy background stamp and heat embossed with Shamrock and Emerald Green EP.  I stamped the sentiment Thank You  from Unity Stamp Co. called Basically Said on vellum with the Carnelian EP and stitched onto the little scene. The new part of my card is stitching!  It’s my first time to stitch the vellum onto a card!
