Beate's Inspiration Challenge

How excited are you that Beate has added an inspiration challenge to her week! I was thrilled! When I saw the little purse! Wowza...those are some awesome colors and what a funky fresh design! :)...So excited to play!

So what's really funny about this today? Do you ever start a project heading in one direction only to completely turn around and go someplace else entirely? ...I do this often!...and tonight is no exception! There is a little something I wanted to try with my copic markers...it turned out really neat to! That I will have to share later...I will have to incorporate it in a different card because the black from the purse made me pull out...of course, black card stock, which reminded me about Beate's chalkboard tutorial...she's so creative!...I was in love with this technique the moment I saw her card! How beautiful! I love the contrast of color! It's just so vibrant and beautiful! Awesome!

...so I pulled out my new Polka Dot Basics set and started playing around...and the next thing you know the whole thing had changed...no copics only chalks...using the chalkboard technique...So love this technique!

Here it is.....

Funky, fresh ...or just funky...I don't know but man look at that color! You gotta love the technique! It soooo rocks! Love it! Thanks so much, Beate for another fun challenge and for another great technique! I so love this one!

Hope you are all having a great night! I am off to get a little sleep. Tomorrow I have promised myself that I would spend the day cleaning my stamping area! This card probably took three times as long as it should have to complete because my desk is such a mess! I would take a picture and show you but then I think you would all have to run out for an update to your tetanus shot! It's a disaster!

I hate the stamp-n-search game that I have been playing for the last week! It's no fun! Besides...Hayden is not only tall enough to grab everything that is left on top of the desk...he is now really curious about everything he sees! He covered himself with a glass of water this afternoon right before bed. I'm just glad the computer wasn't near him when this happened!

Y'all take care and have a great night! I will post you all soon!
