Unity Stamp Co. Blog Hop ~ Graciellie Design

Hi, it's Gaylynn here with a project for the Unity & Graciellie Design blog hop.


Sentiment:  You are capable of amazing things.

This encouragement sentiment is perfect for graduation, good luck or just because.
The sentiment is part of the new Graciellie Design stamp kit at Unity called Amazing Things.
These new kits include her amazing art along with fabulous sentiments like this one.

No automatic alt text available.

I also used the anchor for the September 2017 Layers of Life kit Love Anchors.
This 9/2017 kit is the current LOL for September, but beginning in October, it will show up in the Past Layers of Life under the Love Anchors title in the Unity store.


I needed a masculine graduation card, so I mixed these two kits.
I used an ink smooshing technique for the anchor card using watercolor paper and distress ink pads in two colors, peacock feathers and pumice stone.

There is no video for this anchor card, but the technique used is part of another project of mine with a quick tip video showing the way I use ink smooshing.

Here is a closer look at the anchor card:


Supplies:  Unity Stamp Co. Amazing Things by Graciellie Design and Love Anchors Layers of Life 9/2017; Lil' Inker Designs dies, Canson cold press watercolor paper, Ranger distress ink pads and jet black archival ink.

Time to hop.
