I needed a card to send to a friend who is going through some dark times, and could use some encouragement. I just wanted her to know I am thinking of her, and to give her hope.
Stamps are all Penny Black. The phrase is from their 30-429 Gift From Above set. I also used a phrase from that set on the inside of the card. The flowers/vase is from their Perfect Pairing set #30-346.
I added the striped patterned paper to a top-folding A-2 black card. I stamped the flowers/vase onto bristol smooth paper, and used my Derwent Inktense pencils to watercolor them, then fussy-cut them and adhered them to the card front with foam tape for dimension. I stamped the sentiment onto vellum and added that, and watercolored a strip of the same bristol with the colors I used on the flower, and added that. I brushed some glittery shimmer on the flowers with my Spectrum Noir clear sparkle pen.
Some assorted moonshine sequins from Simon Says Stamp finished off the card.
