Hello, I hope your week is off to a great start! I just love the color combo going on this week at TGIF Challenges. The colors are so soothing and they inspired me to make a sympathy card that I needed for my hubby’s cousin whom just lost her hubby to cancer. Such a terrible and sudden shock as we didn’t know he was sick. I assume those were his wishes.
Card Details: It was time to give some of my older SU stamps some love. I have always been a huge fan of these flowers. The sets that the flowers came from are called Flower Shop and Petite Petals. I paired them with some of the elements of the new Forever Fern stamps and dies. The greeting is from Verve. The tag die is from MFT. I used white embossing powder on vellum for my flowers and then white on navy for the smaller centers of the flowers. These flowers do not come in the same set but compliment each other perfectly. Some gems for the centers. The dotted background paper is that stash I talk about all the time from SU that has a pattern on it and resists ink. So I took my Smoky Slate SU ink and inked it up. Then I wiped it off with a towel just like an emboss resist and the dots come through. I used the same grey ink to ink my SU leaves as well.
I had a hard time photographing this card and it looks much better in real life.
Thanks for all the visits as they really brighten my day!
Take care! Nanc’
