May 16, 2015 with Sympathy



We all have occasion where we need a sympathy card as was the case for me about a week ago.  I had spent some time with my stamping BFF Donna and we both had new product to share.  I had just gotten the new ombre ink pad from Hero Arts and this one was in the greens (if you have not tried them they are awesome).  Using a stencil I sponged the ink with the stencil in place.  I think it makes a great background,.  I also had a new die - well new to me with this set of flowers and I decided to do my focal image in blacks with just a tiny pearl in the middle of each flower, another die cut with sympathy in black and this card was complete with no stamping.  These cards are difficult to send but I hope my friend got a little comfort from it knowing i was thinking about her loss.   Challenges:
     Deep Ocean Challenge - flowers
     Crafting from the Heart - anything goes
     Happy Little Stamper - CAS

I've been looking at that ombre ink and have been looking at getting one and playing. I might need to do that soon rather than later. Wonderful card.
