Putting the sadness aside, I have designed a card which I think is suitable for this sad occasion.
I am always looking at sets which provide what I consider to be stamps with the potential to be great for creating pretty backgrounds.
I noticed two such stamps in the Time For Tea stamp set.
I selected two floral stamps which are designed for two step stamping. So working with Lovely Lipstick card stock, I did some tone on tone stamping using coordinating Lovely Lipstick ink, stamping some base flowers across my layer. Then I used versamark and stamped the second stamp over those. I used Gold Stampin' Emboss Powder and heat set the flowers.
You may notice that some of the gold stamping is a little awry, but I felt I could get away with it. After all, its a handcrafted card and although there may be the odd imperfection, it has been made with love.
I wanted a suitable sentiment and the Itty Bitty Greetings two part set had the perfect one for a Sympathy Card.
So it's done - and I think it is appropriate for the occasion.
Thanks for looking.
Bye for now.
