Beate's Sketch



I am probably the last person who has tried this wonderful sketch by Beate! I don't know why but I struggled with it a bit! This is not one of my best cards......oh well, they all can't be wonderful can they? I used these new acrylic stamps by Impression Obsession, Beach Fun. The images are adorable! I used my Prisma colored pencils and mineral spirits to blend. The paper is from Flair Designs. I used rhinestones and sequins. The circular rhinestones are from Heidi Swapp. I also used this awesome embossing powder called "sand" (how appropriate!) by Stampendous! For what else? The sand!!I did make a different size card, which for me is pretty daring! A 41/2 x 4 1/2! Tell me what you think....could it have been better, improved?

This totally made me laugh out loud, and I am munching watermelon right now. Not the best thing to do for my poor screen.

I think this card is great just the way it is! Love all the sequins, the image is adorable (and colored so nicely!) and that sand EP is the coolest thing ever! Darn it, you're making me want to spend more money! :-)

Isn't it funny how sometimes we don't like the look of our work, but I think it might be because we have been looking at it too long and are not seeing it with fresh eyes?
I love your card, the beautiful colouring, and the colours you chose and, of course, the bling! I think it's great!
