Bloggers Challenge Week 25
The Challenge this week was to create a Sympathy card.
I have had this Pussy Willow image from Sunshine Designs sitting in a drawer for months now and thought it would be a nice subtle image to suit the mood of this card.
Stamping the image on Kraft Paper with Basic Brown Ink, I added some copper highlights to the image and coloured in the blooms with white gel pen. I then sponged over the entire image with Sahara Sand ink to tone down the blooms and add a little depth to the main panel. Using the French Flair stamp with gold encore Ink, I stamped a background on Vanilla Cardstock. Both the main image and the background panel are layered on Baroque Burgundy Cardstock. I wrapped linen thread around a real twig to act as an anchor for my sentiment, which came from the Fancy Flexible Phrases Stamp Set (SU!).
