Good morning everyone. Hope your week is going well. Although I'm knee deep with Christmas card making as I'm sure most of you are, I had to divert from that to complete one of my card orders. I had a request for 5 sympathy cards. I always find sympathy cards need to be soft and mellow. I rummaged through some of my dies to see what I could use.
For my first card I used distress oxide ink work lipstick, wild honey and inka gold platinum. I added this to my teflon mat, spritzed with water, mixed slightly as not to get it too muddy looking, then smooshed some canson watercolour paper - gorgeous results. I used Memory Box dragonfly stems left corner, cut from black c/s, the framed it with MFT pierced rectangle frames. The background is embossed with a ef - sorry not sure of the name. To finished I added a peel off - with sympathy sticker, then added a couple of PTI clear dots.
For my second card, I used distress oxide ink - cracked pistachio and a bit of peacock feathers along with some nuvo embellishment mouse- spring green. I used the same smooshing technique as above.
Memory box clara corner was used, then framed with MFT pierced oval frame. I used an ef for the background as well. Following the same as my first card I used a peel off sticker for the sentiment and then added a couple of pearls.
I ended up making 2 of each of these cards as I had enough ink on my mat to do so. A bit of ink goes a long way.
Now, I need to get back to working on my Christmas cards. Thanks for visiting today, have yourself a wonderful day, whatever your day holds for you.
See you back her soon,
