Unity Be Inspired Challenge: May 14 - June 10

There are a few different avenues to follow for your project for this challenge, I decided to go with the color challenge.

I started with a 5 x 7 card base to which I adhered a piece of Core Impressions from Core'dinations. This is the type of paper that you can tear, sand or use it as is, it is also embossed. You can't see it from this picture but I did sand the paper. This close up of the embossing and sanding shows the sanding on the embossed ridges.

The stamped panel is an itty Bitty stamp from Unity: WIB - 858 Smile in Your Heart. I won this a couple of weeks ago from a Funday Friday giveaway.
Before stamping the image onto watercolor paper, first I colored the paper with a watercolor dot that I received when I placed an order for a different Unity stamp a few weeks ago, they always put a little something extra into your order.
When the watercolor had dried I stamped the image with Tim Holtz Distress Ink - chipped sapphire then I did a die cut using a Spellbinder's Nestabilities set I won thanks to Alicia at Golden Goddess Designs, Spellbinders and facebook. I also embossed the die cut.
I added some washi tape that my son and his fabulous/wonderful wife  sent me from Japan (they live in Tokyo), some bling from Zva Creative and a few pearls and Queen and Co. Goosebumps from my stash.
I am entering this card into this challenge: Unity-be-inspired-challenge-may-14-june-10
