Cas(e) This Sketch #88

Today I have a card to share that I made for
 CAS(E) This Sketch #88 by Donna Mikasa:


And since today is my birthday, I decided to make a pretty card that
sums up how I feel. :)


I used Altenew's Painted Flowers stamp set to stamp my flowers
and a combination of PTI's Wet Paint II & Life is Beautiful stamp sets for my sentiment.
It was almost a one layer card until I stamped the "beautiful" strip and adhered it over top. ;)

Visit CAS(E) this Sketch to see the rest of the DT's takes on the sketch 
and to play along, if you'd like.
You have until Thursday, August 21st to link up your card.

Oh, and before you go, I also have a layout being featured over at Reverse Confetti 
today for the Confetti Camera series! 
I'd love for you to check it out!  


Thanks for looking!

Tami said...

I absolutely love this card! Could you please tell me what inks/brand you used for this card?

Leigh Penner said...

Hi Tami,
I tried to link to your profile, but it's blocked. So I can answer your question here and hopefully you see it....
For this card, I used Papertrey Ink inks in the following colours:
aqua: aqua mist, Hawaiian shores & tropical teal
orange: harvest gold, summer sunrise & orange zest
pink: sweet blush, hibiscus burst, raspberry fizz
leaves: spring moss & simply chartreuse.
I hope this helps!

Thank you SO MUCH Leigh! I've been admiring your card for so long (its been on my Altenew pin board since I first saw it), I finally sprung for the stamp just because I loved your card so much. I really appreciate that you wrote down the inks that you used because I thought those colors really made the card! It seems like PTI ink pads are perfect for two and 3 step stamp sets like these because they are very sheer and thus buildable, I just love that. You have just absolutely made my day!
