Friends With Flair
from Unity Stamp Company
is something I look forward to each & every week.
This week, while I've got my project all ready to go
I'm posting it the night before.
You see this weekend my younger son (13yo right now)
will be competing for a spot on
TaeKwonDo USA Team going to Italy next summer!
yes, you read that right...
and he's already told me I can't go... we will be speaking on the subject again
once we find out if he makes the team or not
I'm too excited
I'm too nervous
I'm extremely proud
*for the background, I created the grid with a ruler & pen
because I can't randomly do squares
*it's just not in me
*then I filled those squares with Galetos in Cotton Candy & Pistachio
blend blend blend
*then I applied Gelatos in Black Licorice using the wedge shaped Faber-Castell thingy
*using Unity's Donna Downey Stamp Imagine It flourish with Spearmint,
I applied the Gelatos directly to the stamp & spritzed with water
stamped on background 4 times, spritzing between each
*next I cut a piece of vellum & stamped the sentiment from Unity's The Right Words using Staz-On
*again using the flourish, I inked it up using Brilliance in Pearlescent Sky Blue and
dabbed a bit of the Staz-On here & there, stamped on vellum
*using UmWow Studio circle mask with the Brilliance, I applied using my fingertip
*I placed one tiny Zot in each corner and a few around the parameter
before adding Queen & Company's Washi Tape
*last I glued it all down to a green cardbase
