Seaside Rendezvous

Hi Guys! Todays card i'm not sure if I love or hate. I'm trying to "step outside my comfort zone" but its not ..uh..very comfortable. lol  Notice there are no ribbons. no buttons, no flowers no stitching *gasp*! Someone hold me down! OK, well the only reason there's no stitching is because I ran out of white thread but the rest was deliberate!

front view:

My recipe:
DPs : assorted from stash
Mesh: Magic Scraps
Gems: Recollection
3D sticky pads: Recollection
Colors: Crayola Crayons and copics (for skin)

A close up:

and detail of the fishing net:

Dorcas, it's good to go out of your comfort zone and you did such a great job doing so. I know if I don't have pearls, bling or sparkles on my cards, everyone thinks it's an imposter doing my creations!! LOL!

Your image is so, so coooool and I love your coloring. The highlight for me is the great mesh you used. I really love it!!

Thanks SO MUCH for joining the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge this week and I hope you will come play with us again next week!

Hey Dorcas, I love the faux-netting in the background of this one, very 'seaside'-y!

Hi Dorcas!

You are good! It would have given me a heart attack to make a card with no ribbons or flowers.. You did good girl! And the outcome was worth the effort - this is a great card! Love the "fish" net and the colorings of this great image is magnificent! Thanks for hanging in there and create this great card!

Thanks for joining Midnight Madness challenge! I love to come and see what you make, so I hope to see you again next week. With or without stiching and flowers ;o)

Dorcas, you did a fantastic job on this card. The image gives a very "vintage" feel, and I am shocked not to see your signature sewing, but the card still is lovely. Have a great weekend. Hugs, dj
