Sending You a Big Hug

This card was fun to make. It isn't my usual style but I love how it turned out! I used several stamps on this.

I was inspired after watching a Unity video. I do not recall which one now.

I used Distress Oxide Inks. I put the three inks on a non-stick craft mat then spritzed with water and laid the paper on top smooshing it into the ink. I let it dry then I took a background stamp from an old Unity KOTM 2010 called "Together We Bloom". This kit is still available.

The big heart came from another Unity set called "I am who I am" and the smaller heart came from the kit "Hello Beautiful" both these sets were designed by artists Jolande van Oosterhout and Marleen van Meerendonk both from the Netherlands. I used Distress Oxide ink and embossed the hearts.

The girl and sentiment came from Unity's Kit of the Month for May called "Free Your Dreams". I colored the girl using Copic Markers. The sentiment I stamped and heat embossed then put foam under to give it dimension.

I made this card for a friend of mine that had been in the hospital. I enjoyed making this so much I may just make some more in this same style.

Have a good one.
