GIU Gal ~ Day 5

I am so excited and honored to be the Growing in Unity Gal this week!  Each day I will post a creation I have made using stamps from Unity Stamp Co.  I am choosing different coloring/stamping methods to share with you throughout this week. Today's technique is smooshing Distress Oxide inks to "color" an image.
I started with Canson XL Watercolor Paper and stamped the globe and sentiment stamp from Unity's Unexpected Places KOM 2/17 in black on it.  I used my Distress Oxide inks in Lucky Clover, Fossilized Amber, and Broken China and smeared them one at a time on my craft mat, spritzing the area with water.  I then used a piece of acetate to pick up the ink from my mat and lay it down on the card front.  When it looked how I wanted it, I dried the ink with my heat tool.  I cut around the image with a GMD wonky stitched rectangle die.  Embellishments include enamel dots and Aqua Midnight Trendy Twine.
