Our thoughts and prayers are with you

Monday April 24, 2017
 
I was asked to make a sympathy card by a friend.  I recently made a card for myself to give to a friend and now another friend asked if would make her one.
 I used some masking tape to block the center sentiment area and then using Paper Trey ink stamps and Simon says stamps to created the flowers, leaves and dots. I used Ranger/Altnew inks. I hope it's not to bright.. But who says sympathy cards need to be drab. I think it's bright and comforting.  I used a white gel pen on the blue flowers. I then stamped with Hero Arts the sentiment. I used Hero Arts Prayers die and cut it out 4 times and layered it. I then embossed it with Stampin Up grey powder. I embossed it about 4 times to make it thick and shinny. I added a few clear Nuvo drops.
