GIU- Day 2

Sorry if you saw an early version of this post yesterday.  It got away from me before I managed to schedule the post time.  The joys of computers.

Anywho.  Welcome back!  For today's Growing in Unity projects, I used the fun "Halloween Greetings" set.  LOVE the witchy gal!




I've been wanting try coloring on kraft paper and I just picked up a small set of Derwent's "Inktense" pencils so this was the perfect opportunity.  Of course, after doing a more muted card, I wanted to do a bright one also so there's card #2.

Please make sure you leave comments for me all of this week.  I'll be drawing a winner from all comments on Sunday and the winner will get two Itty Bittys of their choice from Unity.  Good luck!

Stamps: (Halloween Greetings): Unity
Papers: (CS): Stampin' Up, (Designer papers): Stampin' Up, My Mind's Eye, Graphic 45, Target

  13. I LOVE purple and orange together. I had a dress in those colors when I was 8--I HAD to have it. It was "expensive", but my mom finally agreed. I LOVED it.
