With Sympathy

Thursday May 11, 2017
 
Well it's been a nice start to May. Missing my daughter who lives in Montana now.. she moved there from Colorado a year ago..so planning a trip to visit her. It's about an 8 hour drive from what I hear.. It's  been a few years since I have seen her and much needed visit is in order.. I don't know if it will be later this summer or early fall.. Well see what works out best.   
 
I was digging through my box of stamps. I have a separate box for Paper Trey Ink, Simon Says, Technique Tuesday and various stamps.. Not to mention shelving filled with wood mounted stamps and CD cases filled with acrylic. AND big boxes with seasonal stamps.. Dang there are so many.  Well I love PTI and this one caught my eye again.  I made one last month but different flowers. I love the delicate looking flower.. it was time to play with it again.. there are different sentiments in the set.. but chose this "with sympathy".. I used PTI inks. I then took a copic pen and did that little flick at the bottom of the flower. I took a black sharpie and made the border around the images. I added some Nuvo drops.  I really like the added copic to give the flower more real-ness look.
