Our thoughts and Prayers - Aud Sentiments #187

Thursday August 24 - September 4, 2017
 
Well it's time for a new challenge at
 Aud Sentiments #187 - the theme is
Thinking of you / Sympathy card... PLUS Sentiment 
If you need inspiration head over to Aud and see the DT inspirations.
 
 
Again I had a request for a Sympathy card so this is what I came up with.. The small flowers are from Simon Says and it's a little group of flowers.. I kept adding them and then as I was adding it started to look like lilacs so that is what I went for.. I added a few little leaves. I know those aren't lilac leaves but It needed some greenery. I added copic pen in real light blue background around the flowers. I then used the Hero Arts sentiments and cut out the Prayers four times and layered it then clear embossed it 4 times to give it a shinny thick look.  It's hard to see the Stampin up purple background but it's there and that is what the Prayers is cut from Elegant eggplant. It almost looks black but it's a deep purple. I colored the images with copics and used a little Prisma colored pencils for the flower inside. I added white gel pen for the little dot on the flower center. I added some Nuvo drops on the background.
