Sketched Sympathy

Sketched Sympathy


This card features a stamp from the “Heartfelt Thanks” set from Stampin’ Up (retired).  The set has several two-step floral images with sketchy outlines and corresponding solid fillers that look water colored when stamped.  I wanted to try out different color combinations so I arranged the stamps on my MISTI to make it easier to line up the layers.  While playing, I noticed that the outline by itself looked so elegant and seemed perfect for a sympathy card.  I added the greeting, layered the panels and ended up with this CAS design.

The greeting is from the “Love and Prayers” set from Gina K Designs and was stamped with Gina K Edible Eggplant ink.  Card stock is GKD Edible Eggplant, cream from the Recollections “Coffee and Cream” heavy weight pack, and water color paper.

The stamped panel was cut and embossed with a die from the Spellbinders “Classic Rectangles Large” set.

The current Mod Squad Challenge is “Simply Clean” where we are encouraged to “make a Clean and Simple card. Clean and simple means there is a LOT of blank space, typically white, but I suppose you could use any color. Other than the focal, there is nothing on the card, except a greeting if you want. No embellishments or extras of any kind.”  (Sadly, this site is no longer active.)

Thanks for checking out my card projects!
