It's always hard to create a sympathy card. You don't want it to be too bright, too dark, too whimsical or too..well whatever. So as I found myself this past week in need of one for a friend I took inspiration from the His and Hers class that I am taking right now and created this:
I used an older PTI set - Floral Frenzy combined with Distress Inks on good quality watercolor paper. I stamped my images, then sprayed a few light mists of water combined with Perfect Pearls powder to create a subtle watercolor effect.
I added my sentiment and coordinating dots after my main piece was dry and also added the center pearls at the same time. I matted my main layer using MFT cardstock in Steel Grey. I added both layers to a plain white notecard using foam adhesive.
I mailed this off in the hopes that it might bring a bit of sunshine to my friend in need.
- Distress Inks: Wild Honey, Old Paper, Pumice Stone, Scattered Straw
- Other Inks: SU! Basic Grey (sentiment and scattered dots)
- PTI - Floral Frenzy
- Hero Arts Sentiments - Everyday Sayings
- MFT Steel Grey Cardstock
Thanks so much for coming by today!!
