A Day at the Beach



This card is for Isabella's Sketchbook Challenge #10. The challenge was to make the card all black and white except for the image. I had fun with this one. I used pastels for the background and prismacolor pencils and gamsol for the rest of the image.

Hi Diane, this card is absolutely stunning. I just love the black and white background and your coloured image stands out beautifully. Well done.

Diane, this is fantastic and your image is coloured so beautifully. I love all your different background papers (where did you get them?) and the buttons and bows are terrific. Don't you just love how the image pops when you make a card in black & white? Thanks for playing again at Isabella's.
Hugs!
