I have spent the week working on sympathy cards for our church card ministry. I particularly like the beautiful sentiment on this card to complement the simple scene.
I very lightly sponged the colors onto the white panel and then used a variety of stamps from Stampin' Up's Serene Silhouettes to create the scene. As a final touch, I spritzed it with pearl glimmer mist. In the photos, it just looks a little blotchy but IRL it has a dreamy look to it.
I have a busy card week this week - it's cardmaking at church so I have to put together a whole bunch of kits, it's release week at Sweet 'n Sassy - blog hop and release party on Thursday! - and . . . I have a fun announcement on Wednesday! Be sure to check back!
- Stamps: Stampin' Up Serene Silhouettes, Verve New Mercies (sentiment)
- Paper: Stampin' Up Barely Banana, Basic Black, white
- Ink: Stampin' Up Soft Sky, Pink Pirouette, Marigold Morning (light orange), black
- Accessories: EK Success Border Punch, Tattered Angels Pearl Glimmer Mist, sponges
