Unity (be inspired)

 Every month, Unity Stamp Co shares a color inspiration image and two sketches (layout and card), along with a release of a new sentiment kit.  This is something all Unity lovers look forward each month.   It's called Unity (be inspired) Challenge.  The current challenge is #23.

I usually go with the color combo inspiration...  I really love the result of getting inspired by a photo or image and love how Unity gets out all the colors from the image and put them together very clearly so we can follow.

Here's the card I made inspired by this one.  It is a CAS style card using all the colors from the challenge and a sentiment by Unity Stamp Co.

I used stencils for the background, with some sprayed mist and color.  The sentiment is stamped in a darker color to stand out.

The gold sequins are perfect for a final touch and were inspired by the lights in the reference image.

The based where all is inked and stamped is gray, but all is over a kraft card base, which I've been using a lot lately.

Hope you like it.  I will share with Unity Be Inspired, and also with Unity Friends with Flair next Friday, so leave a comment for a chance to win with Unity.
