Unity Linky for FwF, plus some!

 
     Another week has passed and it is time for the weekend!  It is also time for Friends with Flair, over on the Unity Blog.  We are just at a break in a heat wave, and boy, does it feel good.

     Today my card uses the July, 2015 KOM.  I fell in love with this vintage camera, and decided to give it a bit of a funky look with water colors. I truly used many scraps from my bins including my card base which I believe is a retired SU! color.  I have started cutting down many of my small print 12x12 favorite papers, which just sit since I have gotten away from scrapbooking.  One of my very favorite techniques is stamping direct to designer paper, which I have done with the ric- rac and background stamps from the kit.

I will be entering this for the following:

Unity Friends with Flair- Use Unity Stamps
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge- Anything Goes
Pixie's Snippets Playground #188-  Use those snippets 

     Have a wonderful week ahead, and thanks for stopping!

Great job with the water colors! I'm cutting down all my 12 x 12's also. There are a lot of patterns that I know I'll never use, got any good ideas?

Super snippet card. The camera image is fab - love your choice of colours and the water colouring. I haven't done it for a long time bit I like stamping on to patterned paper too. I think the stamped ric-rac is great. Elizabeth xx
