Courage

Well, can you believe that January is already 1/3 gone?  I really don't know where the time goes.

I made this card this morning because a) I wanted to play along with Unity's Friends with Flair challenge and b) I was really inspired by Unity's new {be inspired} color challenge.

It's a pretty straight forward card using a chalkboard technique.  However, I did do something different with this one.  Besides the normal ink and heat-emboss, I started adding other chalk colors.  When that didn't give me the effect I wanted, I started scribbling with my oil pastels.  I just kept coloring and wiping until I got the result that I was mostly looking for.  One big hint! - when you're satisfied, spray it with a matte sealer or you'll find yourself starting all over.

So here are the Unity challenge guidelines...























...and here's my card.

Unity itty bitty Quiet Voice























Thanks for visiting and I hope everyone has an awesome weekend.
