I found I needed a quick sympathy card, and my go-to set these days for those kinds of cards is Thoughts & Prayers. I am not big on coloring on my stamps with markers....I know that it is a great technique, but I am usually not that patient!!! However, I have seen many beautiful cards using this set with that technique, so I thought I would attempt it.
My method might be a little different.....I inked the whole stamp first in Mellow Moss, then I went over the stems with a Chocolate Chip marker. I colored right over the MM ink, and I was pretty happy with the results:
I used a piece of Thoroughly Modern DP in a Soft Suede pattern, and mounted it on a Kraft card; there are many elements found on this card similar to Monday's card, because I made them within hours of each other, and all the same punches and diecuts were left on my desk! LOL! I did add a leaf diecut to mimic the leaves in the tree; it was cut from Mellow Moss cardstock; one difference on this card is that I added a corduroy brad, as this was being hand-delivered, and didn't need to worry about it fitting in the envelope!
