Unity ATC's

Every month, I swap ATC's with a group of Unity ladies.  We do have themes, but are not required to follow them.  With my Mom's passing, I was a bit late with my December ATC's, and luckily, the ladies were all cool with that- very understanding : )

 For this stamp, I sponged distress inks in 3 colors onto white cardstock, then added the white 'Bokeh' dots at the end. I added Unity sequins- they are purple IRL for an accent.  I love this Zentangle type image- so fun!

Next, I stamped and embossed on DP with poinsettias on it. I added the whisps of greenery with a stamp that I colored on with Distress markers. I added Washi tape at the bottom for a border.

Thanks for stopping by!

I really like the Bokoe technique and yours is awesome.

It's nice to get Christmas cards made ahead of time. That's what I'm doing this year too. Your card is beautiful.

Both of your ATC's are gorgeous, but I truly like the first one a lot. I guess first because I love purple and then I love Zentangle. Of course they were understanding. What friends wouldn't be after all that you have been through. Sending blessings and hugs and hope 2019 is a much better year.
