Beate's Contest

I made this card this weekend for Beate's Big Deal sketch contest. Beate is such a sweetie, I can't believe she finds the time to comment on so many blogs and keep up with her hugely popular blog as well. Congrats on 200,000 hits Beate! This was a really fun sketch.

I started by stamping Fashion Kitty from Pink Cat Studio in Ancient Page Coal Black and then coloring in with Prismacolor pencils and gamsol. I then highlighted with Certainly Celery and Rose Red markers for a little shading. Next I doodled a little frame and layered onto a piece of Rose Red patterned paper from the Palette O' Prints pad and punched out a round tab punch in the same paper.

I then placed a strip of Rose Red striped paper on the Certainly Celery polka dot paper and ran through my Cuttlebug, using the flower texture plate from the Big Impressions Starter Kit. I lightly sanded the paper to make the embossing show. Next I added some May Arts ric-rac acorss the strip, mounted on a 5.5" square Rose Red card base and glued the elements down. I added two EK Success photo corner punches to the corners and then went crazy with my White Sakura Glaze pen, making dots all over the place! :) Next I added the primas with some Lizard Green Bazzill brads and finished off with Diamond Stickles on her flower, scarf, hat box and a little on the primas.
