Card Sketch #100 !!!!

Hello - here's sketch #100!!!

Wow, can you believe that I have drawn up and produced 100 card sketches? I can't - what fun this has been! I hope that you've gotten a little bit of inspiration and ideas from some of my designs. Lately I've been deliberating whether to continue these or not - I would love to hear your opinion and your comments will help me to make a final decision.

The top panel is actually a tag - but there isn't an easy way to draw a tag in Microsoft Word.

The card base is an ivory piece of Canson Papercraft paper, that has a wonderful texture to it and reminds me of watercolor paper. The tag is hand made - I used another tag as a pattern, traced it, cut it out and added the paper reinforcement (using a small round punch). The flowers are stamped on ivory card stock in jumbo java Versamagic ink - I also used the same ink to distress the tag.

The circle is cut out and embossed using nestabilities dies. The strip of paper down the right side and the lower panel are designer papers from The Angel Company, called Willoughby.

Paper - Base is Ivory card stock from Canson Papercraft, the tag and circle paper is from Paper Accents
Stamps - Garden Delight from Inkadinkado
Ink - Versamagic Jumbo Java
Brown card stock - TAC
Grosgrain ribbon in brown
Antique copper eyelet

A while back I took the time to copy all the sketches into my computer. When I work, I don't like to need to search for all the sketches online. So, soon I'll be having them in a printed document. (Will do them in PDF and I can send it out to you to have) I can't work all the time with the computer in front of me, so I love having them in paper.

I would love to see more of your sketches, I think they are great inspiration for you as well as many of your readers. Maybe you might like to do them better in a weekly basis. Do what you feel better with doing.
