With Sympathy

One of my cousins passed away last week, and this is the card I made for his family. Nothing special, but I thought I would share it anyway ... since I share ALL of my cards with you! :)

The sentiment stamp and the flowers are from the same Hero Arts set. I sponged three colors of Distress Ink onto white cardstock. I had the idea I was going to "stamp" with water on a stamp, but that didn't work so well. (You can just barely see a little bit under the leaves where the color was removed by the water.) So, I just stamped the flowers with black. I matted with black and added to a white card base.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

Oh, my gosh, I'm sorry about your cousin. It's a beautiful card with a pretty background. I can clearly see where the ink was lifted and while it may not have been effective enough on its own, it's a nice highlight for the silhouette image. I'm so glad you do share ALL of your cards. I think I get lazy about the photographing, but my excuse is that I don't have a designated area and always have to move stuff out of the way and set up. Actually, it's not that big of a deal, but I make it a big deal, sheesh.

My condolences on the passing of your cousin. It's sad to lose family members. Your card is very pretty. I love its quiet simplicity, and I'm sure the family appreciated it, too.
