Today is the Day and Dreams

Two cards today. "Today is the Day" is my submission for FWF#33 (Friends With Flair at Unity). I love how coloring the bicycle with markers before stamping gave the image a watercolor look. The paper is by Colorbok (Forest Friends). The second card is "Dreams". Both cards use Unity's latest set by Melody Ross called "One Precious Life". I liked this girl chasing her dreams but I wanted to give her a skirt so I used an upside down flower and borrowed the wings and legs from an image on patterned paper in DCWV's Once Upon a Time stack (love this paper stack!) I had to add the sweet little butterfly dreams for her to catch! TFL. And enjoy Unity's Blog Hop today.

wowsers! Where to start!!

I love the design and colours of that first one..that stamp is so cute. What kind of markers did you use to do that?

The second card..I love the artsy/collagey look of it..it's such a genius idea with the "skirt"

Great job!

Fabulous cards! Love the watercolored look of the bicycle image and the creative way you altered the girl image in the second card.

So creative! Love how you added the petals for the skirt, the effect of the bicycle, and the background to "Today's the day" - very cute.
