Impression Obsession In The Pink Challenge


Hello everyone, 
Thanks so much for stopping by.  
I've done the near impossible for me today.  I made a sympathy card.  
I just can never make them on the spot.  I always second guess myself. 
So today I set down with the need to finally get this one done.  It's only way late! 
But better late then never, I hope! 

I started by pulling out my glitter water colors.  I chose this gorgeous rambling rose image from Alesa Baker Designs, Impression Obsession.  I stamped the image with black ink and embossed with white embossing powder.  It took on this awesome embossing, it looks almost antique.  
I then painted with just two colors of water color glitter ink.  In real life these roses just sparkle.  


I added some splatter with the water color dirty water.  I like to keep my rinse water in a little dollar store ice cube tray. I find I like using the diluted color to add dimension and splatter.  


For the sentiment I cut the word prayers from a Simon Says Stamp die. 
Then I used just part of a sentiment by Dina Kowal. 
I have to give a shout out to Dina here because when I first saw this sentiment I knew I needed it.  Dina had commented she might cut it apart to use it for more then just the holiday season. I had mentioned that I would just mask it off because I'm not brave enough to cut my stamps.  So I used my sticky notes and stamped just part of the sentiment. Then added the double layer die cut.  


To finish, I added a natural element of twine. 


And there you have it.  Now to work on my stash of sympathy cards before I actually need one. 

I'm playing along with the Impression Obsession blog challenge In the Pink. 

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a great day!

  2. Wow! This is beautiful! Such an encouraging card. I know just what you mean. I want to get ahead on sympathy cards. As sweet as it is to make it personal it's hard to actually create when you feel so sad for the person it's being made for!

  4. I love your tender card, Joyce. It's perfect for a sympathy occasion. Your design is simple, with that beautiful phrase offset just right, and the perfect amount of spatter.
