It's A Birthday Hip Hop!

Hello! Welcome to Angela's 40th Birthday Hip Hop for Unity! Happy Birthday Angela!

In true Angela style, she's celebrating by giving YOU 40% off all stamps! And with some gorgeous new releases today, you certainly won't be starved for choice... :-)


I'm sharing the inspiration project I made for Unity (it was also posted on the Unity blog earlier). I was flipping through Australian Stamping, Cardmaking & Papercraft Magazine recently, when I came across a gorgeous Unity feature by Australian cardmaker Edna Morrisedie...


How beautiful are those cards? I'd been meaning to try colouring an image over a text page for a while, and these beauties gave me another nudge.

Edna's beautiful cards are Phyllis Harris stamps coloured over some dictionary pages. I didn't have any pages like that, so I decided to try colouring directly onto some MME patterned paper with my Prismacolor pencils. I used Face the Sunshine, also by Phyllis Harris.


*sigh*  Gotta love Phyllis Harris stamps!


It's a bit more subtle, but I still love it! I'll definitely have a go at this technique again!



Here's a list of all the DT girls Hip Hopping today - make sure you leave a comment on each blog as we'll be selecting three random commenter's to win a $20 Unity Stamp Co gift certificate!


Thanks for visiting!
