Ninety Nine!

Good morning! It's time for another sketch. I designed this one to be 3.5x6, but feel free to make it 4.25x5.5 if that better suits your design. This card ended up being a 10 minute creation! I knew exactly which stamps I wanted to use, that always speeds up the process. I like how the tea ink matches the Kraft cardstock when it dries and I really like the floral image. I decided to see how it looked shadowed with the two shades of tea ink. I think it works! I ended up making this a very neutral card, so I thought it'd be good to add just a tiny colour pop with the red. Supplies: Stamps: Up, Up and Away (PTI), Insightful Meadow (Donna Downey with Unity) Ink: Chai and Chamomile Tea Inks, Fresh Snow Paper: White, Modern DSP, Scarlet Jewel, Kraft Accessories, etc.: Corner Rounder, button and twine

  10. Great sketch I seldom do the long cards (hotdog fold a friend says) but felt the stamp I used needed it and found some great patterned card stock so quite simple doing my card. Thanks for the chance to play and DT did awesome cards.
