Unity + My Little Shoebox

Hello! Welcome to my contribution to the 
UNITY STAMP
 and 
MY LITTLE SHOEBOX BLOG HOP
I know that this hop will be great fun...who doesn't love the
whimsy of My Little Shoebox designs, right?
**There will also be prizes to be given away**
 so be sure to comment as you go :)

You should be arriving here from Renee Aslette's Blog.
If something goes awry along the way, just head back to the 

It's New Release Week of My Little Shoe Box stamps at Unity
and here is a peek at the two designs that I had a chance to craft with 
 
I tried this stamp in a couple of different fashions.  
I wanted to be able to color in the mushrooms in various colors, so I went
with stamping the background stamp onto the actual card-front.
I incorporated watercolor pencils and markers to achieve the look that I wanted :)
My Little Shoebox: Oh, Deer! Happy Campers and Creek-side Trail Papers
Cream Alphabet Stickers and Coming Home-Soaring Above Paper
 This next project actually started out with the intention of being a card :)
 Sometimes when you sit and stare at something long enough, you 
know it's time to try another avenue!
 For the mushrooms, I stamped the image three different times:
onto a swatch of Vintage Shop-Rose Ribbon & Heirloom (back) and
 Oh Deer- A Walk in the Woods papers by MLS.
After cutting and piecing them together, I began embellishing with
other elements from My Little Shoebox:
Cream Alphabet Letters; Vintage Shop-Cardstock Sticker; hand-cut butterflies
from Secret Garden-Dorothy and Notebook-Truly Yours.
