With Sympathy for friend

Tuesday April 11, 2017
 
It's always sad when a friend looses a parent.  My co-worker (when I worked) just lost her father.  (I am still in contact with a few co-workers and so they fill me in on important things.) I  wanted to make a sweet nice comforting card for her. I used my Paper Trey Ink stamps and stamped with Ranger inks. I did the center flicking area with copics to give some more depth to the flowers. I like the added look it gives. I haven't tried this part of the stamp. I usually go more for the poppy looking flowers. I like the look. I used a sharpie black pen and did the border around the card. I added some Nuvo drops.  I hope it gives her comfort. Having lost both of my parents it's sad. I miss them every day.

What a kind thing to do for a previous co-worker. I'm also amazed at how steady your hand is to draw the border yourself. Thanks for joining us at Use Your Stuff
