Here’s a simple little something for the Wplus9 Birthday Week 4 Challenge, to ‘Stretch It’ by trying something out of our comfort zones. A very, very simple card here, as I’m short on time again this week.
I don’t step out of my comfort zone often, even outside of card making – I’m definitely a creature of habit! But I wanted to participate in all the Wplus9 challenges this month. So I thought of a few techniques and such that I’ve been wanting to try lately, deciding on the chalkboard technique.
I suppose it wasn’t much of a stretch, especially after completing my project and realizing how easy it was to accomplish this technique! Knowing how I love to sit in a good rut, though, this was definitely a stretch for me. I’ve wanted to try it for a long, long, loooooong time, and now I can finally check it off my long list of things to try.
