With Sympathy

Thursday June 29, 2017
 
 Well hope you've been enjoying your summer. It has been nice. I am so glad being retired that I get to enjoy the sun instead of looking out a work window and wishing.. Or just enjoying an hour in the card driving home.
 
I had a request for a sympathy card so I put my thinking cap on and this is what I created.  I used some Simon Says flowers and leaves from various sets. I used Paper Trey Ink sentiment. When I stamped the images I used Memento grey ink. I didn't want a stark black.. I think the grey work.. what do you think?? I colored the images with copics then went in with Prisma colored pencils and white gel pen and completed the images. I added some Nuvo drops to the background. I love the way the flowers came out.. I have been using more and more colored pencils with copics and I think getting better and better.

Billie these cards are so hard to make and this one is just beautiful and elegant with the pearl drops, colors of the flowers, the font of the sentiment. Thank you so much for the inspiration this week at 4 Crafty Chicks Anything Goes Challenge.
