I'm continuing to give some attention to a few of the under-utilized stamps in my Unity stash. My first card is a less-than-typical wedding card... for a less-than-typical wedding.
A while back, I felt the need to add a compass image to my collection, and really liked the classic lines of this Direction of Your Heart itty bitty. While I used the sentiment here, I hadn't used the compass yet. But when I wanted to make a card for my nephew's upcoming destination wedding (in Hawaii!), I thought this might be a great way to commemorate it. In my fevered imagination, I thought using a tag element would be a little reminiscent of a luggage tag. (I know, not really, but I can pretend.) And note the subtle, arrow-like shape of the sentiment? Pointing sorta kinda to Hawaii? It all works for me. :D
My second card uses another itty bitty, the co-branded Webster's Pages Celebrate. While I had used this set once before, it was definitely time to play with it again.
Several weeks ago, I pinned this image to one of my Pinterest boards. Mine of course looks quite different from the original, but that's the great thing about an inspiration picture, isn't it? I toyed briefly with the idea of reverse-stamping a reflection, but didn't want to wreck what I'd already done, and the image seemed a bit large for that, anyway. I am so pleased with the sponged water effect! Although I suppose to a sailor that's mighty calm water. :D
I'll just take this opportunity to encourage you to leave a comment -- since one lucky commenter this week will win two itty bitty sets courtesy of Unity! There are close to 400 to choose from. Or maybe you've even seen one you like here today!
I'm going to stretch a theme a bit here... this week at CASology, the cue word is POND. So I'm thinking of those people that make model boats and sail them around their neighbourhood pond... (Nice little connection here: I built a model wooden boat for my nephew to play with back when we were both much younger!)
