Unity Friends with Flair 26/7/13

Hi Everyone!  Thanks for all the well wishes last week regarding my back.  I was prescribed stronger pain killers throughout the week and have had some physio and acupuncture.  I am now sitting typing this with my back all taped up for the next few days to stop me from bending and to give me some extra support in the hope that this may help settle things down.  The diagnosis apart from my Spondylitis flaring up is that I have two vertebrae rubbing together when I move.  Anyway thanks to the measures taken this week I have been able to sit for longer than a few minutes and have been in the craft room today playing.

I decided to play with my Flat Fabio Sprays from Lindy's Stamp Gang and my Inktense Pencils both of which give such vibrant color plus I just love the names of my Flat Fabios.  The three I am using today are Pineapple Paradise, Hibiscus Rose and Carribean Blue.

I am linking up both these cards with today's Friday Friends with Flair.




The first card is using off center masking and my Mists (I am using my Lindy's Stamp Gang Flat Fabio's). 
 I started by using my mask first and spraying with blue.  I then stamped my image slighty off the white space left by my first mask.  I covered over the image and masked moving slightly each time twice more to use my Yellow and Pink Sprays.  As you can tell my Pink Spray is playing up a bit but I kinda liked the blobs.  I then highlighted where my yellow spray outlined the image further with my Yellow Inktense pencil. 

The sentiment is made up of some small preprinted wooden words which I brought when I was in Melbourne last month. I am now kicking myself that I didn't buy more.  The butterfly which was already out on my desk is from the Jan 2012 KOTM and I've stamped it using my Black Big Brush Marker Pen.


This week was CHA in the States, so Unity have been having a week long Creative Party to celebrate and as part of this were running a Coloring Contest with which they are giving you a free digital download to use.

Here's my entry.


I have water-colored the image with my Inktense Pencils and used my Yellow Flat Fabio to highlight an area on my embossed background which my sentiment sits over.  Both my image and sentiment were spritzed lightly with the blue and pink.


Here's a bit of a close up so you can see the light spritz.

Be sure to go over to the Unity Facebook Show and Tell Group and check out all the amazing entries using this image, I guarantee you won't be disappointed.

Anyway I am out of here, hope you all have a great weekend!

Wow, Danielle, these cards are gorgeous! Love those sprays you are using. They are so intense. Sorry about your back, but is sounds like it is improving slightly? Hope so!

Two extremely gorgeous and modern cards. The first one is my favourite as I love how you have off centred the masks when spraying and colouring. Gorgeous bright colours and I love the cut out words.

Hope you feel better soon. Being unwell/in pain is awful anyway, without the added problem of this weather. Take it easy.

Hugs Lisa xxxx <3

Both cards are beautiful! The masking effect turned out wonderfully. Oh, those stamps from Melbourne are awesome - maybe you can find the store online???

Nancy said...

Zella said...

Both cards are so pretty! I love the bold/intense colors...very nice! Glad to hear that you're feeling better....hey - you could have always had them tape your back with washi tape and then when you needed some just reach back and there it is. :) Praying for you!!!
