Sweet Sketch Wednesday

Good Evening, I am not happy with my card today, it appears to be a bit insipid.  I went around it the wrong way and coloured the image first and then had real probs trying to get the backing papers to co-ordinate properly, and I think I should have used much bolder colours. I am not a natural when it comes to art, and I struggle with picking colours for these fantasy type images.  I followed Sketch102 over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday, but, I don't think I have nailed it properly.   Onto the details:  the image is a Sweet Pea stamp by Ching-Chou Kuik and I have coloured with Promarkers and Copics, I masked the image and created  the background with distress inks and Judikins colour dusters, the backing papers are from CuddlyBuddly and everything else comes from my stash. 

As the colours are quite pale I think I can enter into this week's Papertake Weekly challenge which is Pale, Pretty Pastels.

Many thanks for visiting today

  15. Hi Beryl, I really love your card great image, and colours. I do know what you mean about colouring images and then matching up your design papers, when I first started out I would colour images well ahead, because I love colouring. Then realised that I found it hard to match my design papers. I think you may have been happier if you had used a darker back ground the would have made your image pop. I just adore your embossing I love embossing on cards. Thanks so much for sharing your card with us this week at Sweet Sketch Wednesday and good luck.
