forever thankful for YOU

boy I haven't gotten to play with Unity's Friends with Flair for some time
just been busy busy busy
but today I didn't go to work, so I made time to play
and relax. I really needed this mental health day!

First I created the Blue & Green Background using Gelatos.
Next I used Donna Downey's bloom group stencil with a baby wipe to remove
the Gelatos in the flower areas.
I applied two Purple Gelatos using a stipple brush and mixed Brown with Dark Green for the stem which I also stippled on.
Using Unity Stamp Company's Thankful for You, I stamped just the sentiment
with StazOn in Timber Brown.
Last I used Unity Stamp Company's Direction of Happiness with Golden
Titanium White for the three little butterflies.


  1. This is so sweet and pretty. I love it.
    I saw this on Unity FWF. Have a blessed day
