Rain Must Fall {Growing In Unity: Day 4}

Welcome to day 4 of my week as the Growing In Unity gal!

Stay tuned each day this week as I show you something I've created using stamps from Unity Stamp Company...and be sure to comment on all five of my Growing In Unity posts this week if you want a chance to win some free stamps!

If you are new here or aren't already a follower: I'd love to have you follow my blog!
If you are one of my regular readers: Thanks for coming back! I love having you!

Today's card is one that can be made using a minimal amount of supplies, but I love the look of the marbled cardstock.
(You can find my tutorial on making marbled cardstock with Distress Stains and shaving cream here.)

Once I created the background, I simply stamped the umbrellas and sentiment from the Rain & Flowers kit, and my card was done.

Thanks for stopping by today - and don't forget to leave a comment so you can win some stampy goodness!

And, of course, I'd love it if you sign up to be a follower!

Shaving cream? Who on earth comes up with this stuff? But it's gorgeous!! Don't know if I could pull it off but you sure did. Love it!

Great card and love the marble background!

cjs said...

Interesting way to make a 'marble' effect...is there a particular shaving cream that you use (unscented?) so the card doesn't smell?
