the golden thread

Today I've got a little 6"x6" canvas I made for a friend. It's 1 of 3 - hopefully I'll have the other 3 ready to share soon.
I collaged some paper, painted some yellow, and stamped some Unity ( Classified Newsprint).
I used the Moroccan stencil from Simon says Stamp and some embossing paste for cool texture. I inked over it with gold ink for some color.
I added some washi tape, die cuts, flair, and a fussy-cut stamped image (Grow Yourself Extraordinary).

 I created the quote on my label maker (love that thing!).
This was so fun to make. I think I need to make some artwork to hang in my own house now!
ETA: I'm linking up to the Moxie Fab World challenge to use stencils.
Thanks for stopping by today.

a card, envelope, bag thingy....

I made a card to send to someone in a bigger package so instead of using a standard envelope (since it wasn't directly being mailed) I stuck it in this kraft sack. A sackelope maybe?? Think that could catch on? :)

I didn't pull out the card on the inside but it;s inked up with the Kaleidiscope stencil from Ronda Palazzari and I masked off an area for my note.

I used some of my favorite Unity stamps (Insightful Meadows on the tag, Vintage
Handwritten on the green paper, sentiment is from Where You Should Be) so I'm linking up to Unity's Friends with Flair hop.

Simon Says Stamp weekly challenge is to use a tag. So I'm linking up there too. :)

I was trying to conjure up a Springtime feel with these colors and flowers so I hope I managed to do just that!

Thanks for stopping by today folks!
