Variations Week - Randi's View

Hello there, Sweet Pea lovers!

March seems to be a very busy month to me, and on top of it all my body is troubling a bit with me, but there is so much fun to come :)

This week, it is Variations Week at the Sweet Pea Blog. This week we've been playing with the beautiful stamp named Dreaming of Aquamarine Tides by Katerina Koukiotis. I really like this stamp! 
I've been playing with a digi stamp again, and that means (as usually) that I've had to put my Distress refills aside, and color up the image in an other way. This time I chose to color up the image with my grey pencils which I usually use only for writing or doodling. I know the coloring isn't that great, but I think the card ended up okay, somehow... 

Here are some pics - those fab dp's are from 3ndy papir!

The finished card

I've added some Glossy Accents to the seashell and some Stickles around the image. The image is mounted on 3D dots for dimentions in the card

Pebbles sticker - and some Washi Tape behind it ;)

More embellishments

Just another view ;)

Okay, that's what I had for you today!
I hope you liked my card - I think she's just so beautiful!!

Lots of love, Randi 


  1. Oooh I think your pencil colouring is gorgeous! It's a really soft, pretty effect. And the black and white image works beautifully with these vintage papers and the embellies. I love the Glossy Accents on the shell too! :)


  2. I like how this turned out too Randi! Love the tint of brown brought out by your base color and especially like the flowers. That skin tone is awesome!! It sets the mood for your entire creation.

  3. Randi, this is gorgeous. Love the 3d dots, such a nice touch. Stunning, you view on this stamp is awesome

  4. beautiful card Randi. Love your elements.

    I love your shading on this especially the nose and the cheeks - really beautiful.

  6. I also love your pencil colouring, Randi. It goes perfect with the beautiful background paper. The pebble and pearl swirls with lovely flowers are brilliant accents.

  7. Randi - I love how the gray pencil turned out on your image, so soft and beautiful looks like an old hand tinted photo!

  8. Nice Randi, I like BW on this image, it stands out on the card. Just lovely.
