FFF is now FWF!

All weekend long, go to Unity for 30% off on everything except new KOM sign ups.

The customers of Unity, or addicts as we are lovingly called, use Friday Friends with Flair {FWF} to display their creations made with Unity.

Angela, owner of Unity, has generously given out a secret blinky to one lucky customer participating in the FWF to display on their blog and will choose a winner from all the visitors who posts a comment on their blog during the hop!

So as you travel along the list of participating Friends with Flair (FOUND HERE), don't hesitate to leave some love for your chance to win the above mentioned RUBBA!

Time for the UNOFFICIAL theme, IF you are interested in doing the UNOFFICIAL theme for FWF, next week a few addicts and I have picked the theme of
JOURNAL BLOCKS
...
any stamp that can be considered a journal block! So let's show them off next week in our FWF posts!


This is UNOFFICIAL and NOT required. If you want to do the theme, great ~ if not, perfectly okay with me! And if you have a Great Idea for the UNOFFICIAL theme, please let me know in the comments section.

Now, I tried to heat set the Stazon on the photo paper since it wasn't drying very quickly. There was a little mishap and the paper started to melt RIGHT away, so I went ahead and melted the whole layer to make it consistent!

The splatter technique came from Tim Holtz found HERE. I didn't have glossy cardstock so I tried photo paper (which Tim says right in his tutorial not to use, but I tried it anyway!) Mine didn't turn out as cool as Tim's, but not too bad for my first attempt and not having all the right tools!

Here is my example of the Unofficial Theme for this week QUOTES:




STUFF I USED FOR THIS CARD:

STAMPS: {Unity} June '09 KOM
INK: Stazon Black, Ranger ReInkers
PAPER: HP Photo paper, Paper Studio
ACCESSORIES:
TOOLS: Can of Air, Heat Gun

NOW, head back to the CUSTOMER BLOG LIST on Angela's blog so you can continue visiting all the Unity Addicts out there!
