So, of course, my craft room is where I long to be when I'm stuck indoors. I need to catch up on some thank you cards, and, sadly, a couple of sympathy cards. I just finished this sympathy card, which I will send out today.
Die: Our Daily Bread Double Stitched Circles
Tim Holtz distress ink
For the floral panel, I stamped two of the poppies from the clear set, masking and inking with antique linen distress ink, so the lines would disappear when I colored them. I watercolored the poppies and leaves with Tombow markers and a watercolor brush, laying color down with the marker, then spreading it with the wet brush. I spattered the background with Tombow ink and a wet brush.
I cut the circle using partial die cutting, as seen in Jennifer McGuire's video HERE . Then I fussy-cut around the flowers, then taped some specialty mulberry paper behind the opening, and adhered it to a green A2 card, using craft foam for dimension. I stamped the sentiment onto a green scrap, and adhered it. That's it.
I am adding my card to these challenges:
Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge - Anything but Christmas
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Anything goes
Thank you for visiting.
