ISSC02 - Slow Down

Hi everyone! I'm back this week for another challenge over at the iSpy Sketches blog :) This week's ISSC02 sketch is based of this beautiful card by the one and only Beate Johns!

So when I drew up the sketch I drew it as Beate had it on her card...and then when I went to make my card, I imagined another panel on it. Purely by mistake, I swear! So, I'm going to go with "this is my interpretation" of Beate's beautiful card :D

The little turtle has been water coloured, cut out and then shaded with chalks and given a nice thick coat of crystal effects :) I popped him up on a sponged background and to finish off the card I added the super sweet stamping bella sentiment :D
