Beach Days with Unity!

Welcome to day two of Unity All Week Long! Today I decided that I would share with you some more cards I made for this weekends VSN challenges over on SCS. On Sunday I had the chance to participate in another super fun VSN challenge. When I read the challenge description I instantly thought of my Unity stamp set Beach Days and Sun Rays! I create these cards for the first challenge of the weekend Double Down, where you had to make two of the same card. The hostess also listed a few things that one may think of when they think fun times, and my mind went directly to the Beach! So I pulled out my Beach Days and Sun Rays stamp set and got to making some fun monochromatic cards! I have been trying to find some ink time for this stamp set since it arrived on my doorstep since there are so many great images in this set, and I finally got the chance to ink it up! I really like how my little 'Beach Days' list turned out. I started by cutting the edges a little roughly then sponging the edges with Memento Rich Cocoa ink, followed by crumpling the paper itself to look so distraught. I also included a few things on my list with a nice copper gel pen, gives it a bit of a shine. Hope you liked today's creations! Be sure to stop by tomorrow for more Unity fun!
Stamps: Beach Days and Sun Rays from Unity; Paper: Cream, Whisper White, Dark Chocolate; Ink: Memento Rich Cocoa; Accessories: Pop Dots, Sponge, Copper Gel Pen

Those are really great! I hadn't seen them in the gallery yet, but I'll have to leave a comment there, too. I really like the colouring - it's different from a lot of "beachy" cards.
