Rachel Time

So the Unity link up went live at Midnight for FRIENDS WITH FLAIR.... and it is now Noon Thirty, and I am just getting my post done! Running late, but I am right on Rachel Time!
(make sure to go check out all the posts on the blog)

I tried the new to me technique that Unity just made a tutorial on. You can see it HERE.

Here are my two tries at this technique.

This one I used the direct to paper technique to add the color before embossing and adding black.
Stamps are from Insightful Meadows and Birdie Inspiration. Can you see the bird? Well that makes this card qualify for the Unity Challenge this month HERE.

The one I sponged the different colors in different spots. The stamps are Ippity. 
I went a little sew crazy on this one. I have a hard time sewing, specially when there is heat embossing.
