I'm Baaaack!

Happy Monday, everyone! I have some fun news to share today! For those of you who read my blog regularly, you might remember that I was a guest designer for Unity Stamp Co. in April. Well.... after my guest time was up, they asked me if I would be interested in staying on as a 'regular'... so here I am! :) I am a HUGE Unity fan & can't seem to put their images down. I love the fact that they are always coming out with something new. My mojo just kicks into overdrive when I have fresh product to work with. The entire group is FANTASTIC to work with and I think I've found a really great place to call 'home'.

Now... onto other things. Not only is it Monday, but it's also June 1st, which means that Unity's new Kit of the Month (KOM) is in my hot little hands. Today's challenge comes from Jen Buck, who double-dog-dared us to make a monochromatic project. Honestly, I'm not sure if I've EVER done monochromatic... so it was a good challenge for me. I used this fun pear tree image from the KOM, along with a couple of sentiments from the set. (I love how the kit has the words, "perfect", "pear" AND "pair" all as separate images. You can mix and match and create all kinds of good things!)

If you're a KOM subscriber, make sure you make your way over to the SCS Unity Forum to find out more about how YOU can join in the challenge too! The winner will get to be July's Guest Designer!!!! Someone's going to win BIG... & maybe that someone is you! :) (but you only have until June 3rd... so you've got to act/stamp quickly!)

My images were colored with Copics, and then I applied some of Ranger's Matte Accents to parts of the pears to give it some fun dimension with just a hint of shine. The patterned paper is from the Early Bird Collection by Cosmo Cricket.
