Sharing in your sorrow. Sympathy cards are never an easy
thing to make, or send out, but sometimes life hands us the
unexpected, so it’s nice to have a few on hand.
This card actually started out as a thank you card, but somehow
this sentiment just sort of fit. It’s a bit quirky for a sympathy card,
but all the better, then one knows it truly is handmade!.
I smeared gesso onto a piece of designer paper
(Falling In Love Designer Series Paper), I tried using the
Whisper White Craft Ink pad, but I wanted more coverage
than I could get with that, so out came the gesso. After the
gesso dried, I stamped on it with the fern from the Butterfly
Basics set and finally got the contrast I was looking for.
The stamped piece behind the fern was created using the
Timeless Textures set, and the Sharing In Your Sorrow
sentiment comes from the Thoughts and Prayers set.
I tore some of the paper by hand and used three colors
of ink to sponge the edges…Crumb Cake, Early Espresso
and Elegant Eggplant.
The color of the paper, the gesso and the ink all came
together and has this sort of elegant, but artistic moody
thing going on…what do you think?
Until next time…
FYI: You may have noticed I have been away for a while, there’s a reason for that.
I have been battling with my internet and ,what I will call, computer gremlins!
Basically, I was unable to even log onto my blog or get my email! Seems
there were some security updates going on which left my computer at risk…
yikes!! Nothing to do with my blog or such, just settings on my laptop and I
was reluctant to log into anything until I knew things were secure!
I have found a temporary way around it so I can be getting things done,
while things are being fixed! Hopefully, I will not have to be MIA again
because of it… these things scare the crap out of me!
Don’t forget…Sale-A-Bration ends on Friday!!!
