(2016 c33) Unity Red, White, Blue & Color Burst




The first two stamps are from Unity Stamp Co.  called Beautiful Inside and Out.   On watercolor paper I stamped the sunburst (which is supposed to be a burst of fireworks) with Versamark and heat embossed with silver EP & then off set & re-stamped and heat embossed with white EP.  Then I stamped the swirl and heat embossed with Red glitter EP.

The star is from Unity’s SMAK 3/14 called Just Plain Happy.  I heat embossed it with white EP and then covered the inside with Versamark Pen and heat embossed with the Red Glitter EP.  For the background I colored with Color Burst Liquid Metals, Metalic Sky. While it was still wet I added Ultramarine Blue Color Burst by Ken Oliver
