Simply Betty - IAS #53

Hello my friends, and happy Sunday! It's March - in like a lion; out like a lamb. We're supposed to be getting nasty, cold weather again. Yesterday was so nice, even saw the sun for awhile and I got to use my new A/C for the first time. The last two weeks have really gotten away from m and I didn't realize that it was already time to post another card for International Art & Soul. I was late getting it posted on the design team blog.

This fortnight our theme is Sequins and/or Beads. use as little or as much as you like. I went for a few beads on my card.

 This is a stamp I got a long time ago from Simply Betty Stamps. I don't see it on the website anymore which isn't surprising since it is so old. The sentiment is from Lili of the Valley - Sketchy Wishes. The cardstock is from Stampin Up - Sahara Sand and the designer paper from Basic Gray, Hello Pastel collection. I love BG paper and was so sad when they stopped making their paper. My accessories are just a few beads popped up in the left corner.

I colored the image using Copic markers - E29, E40, E41, E42, E44, E49; E50, E51, E53, E59,  R81, R83, and R85.

I liked the way I could just pop the image in the middle of the designer paper.

I hope you will come on over and play with us for this challenge. It's easy, peasy. Come check out what the rest of the design team has created for your inspiration and play along. You could be picked as the winner or one of the Top 3.

  4. She looks like an old time southern belle, but with a mini-skirt! Cute! Such pretty paper. I was shocked when BG quit making designer paper when I was sure they were so popular. I still have lots of BG to use up. Our Sunday was nice, but chilly. We did get out to enjoy it. Woke up this morning to 32 degrees. That's cold for me!

  5. Just adorable Maggie, the image is just darling, how cool when we find and oldie but still a goodie in our stashes :) :) :) love and hugs xxxx
