April 18, 2015 Sympathy


I was able to spend an afternoon and evening with a bestie Donna and we did lunch, shopping, time in her studio, wonderful dinner (oh did I say she is also a great cook), and some much needed "talk" time.  We did get a few cards made and I must say this is my favorite.  The die cut is from Memory Box, and I had the with sympathy in my drawer of die cuts so I don't know who makes it.  We took a stencil, a Hero Arts ombre green ink pad (new) and using a sponge sponged the three color variations through the stencil, love not only the ink pad but the great results.  the longer the ink sits on the cs,  the more vibrant the colors become.  I have had this flower die for a while and took it with me to use and again love it, some pearl green bling for center of flowers and this card is already in the mail box this am.  I am already thinking of lots of uses for this die and this technique.  Challenges:
