Beate's Sketch Challenge




Beate has such great sketches and I had an opportunity to play with her latest this weekend. I pulled out a couple of images that I had previously colored in with my copics. I was lucky enough to have received these images from those wonderful bloggers out there in blogland. The dinosaur card is perfect for a little boy and I kept it simple. I love kids but the little ones just don't understand the work that goes into them as they tear through them so I try to go the simple and quick route when making cards for little kids. As for this wonderful old lady, kind of think of her as a self portrait, except I don't have the nerve to wear a two piece. Thank you for stopping by, I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend

Flossie these are just adorable. I agree with you when it comes to kids cards they don't care. I make them simple also. Love the second image. Great coloring! :)

Luv that dinosaur card, so cute! I have that DP & have used it a lot in my son's scrapbooks. I'll have to use it on a card now that I see how great it looks! Lady on the beach card is adorable & so cool looking, makes me laugh! That stamp is great for someone I know who would get a laugh out that card. I'll have to search for that stamp. Great job Flossie, I luv both cards!

Don't I know it about our handmade cards being ripped and such. Makes me careful for who I send my really time consuming cards to.

Love what you did with the sketch.
