FTL 46!

Here's this week's sketch. The trio of objects is meant as a suggestion only. Feel free to have a single focal point if that's where the inspiration hits!

Here's my take on it. My inspiration came from here and here. I used 2 square nestabilities interiors and a white gel pen to trace the squares surrounding the image and sentiment. This is such a great technique for adding a bit of dimension to a one layer card. Supplies: Stamps: Pocket Silhouettes, Faux Ribbon Cardstock: Kraft Ink: Dark Chocolate, Landscape

Natasha-
I'm new to nestibilities. I see so many used in card samples on-line. What would you recommend starting with. Circle, oval, square, rectangle? And, are the classic scallop or petite scallop more popular? I'm feeling overwhelmed and would LOVE any advice you have! :)
Love you stamp style...simple, clean, classy! Take care. Nicole nmbailey5@verizon.net
