Happy Monday, peeps! Hope you had a good weekend! The Retro Rubber gals have a wonderful sketch this week courtesy of Claire:
Unfortunately, I needed a sympathy card, so I looked in my "older" stamps and thought Awesomely Artistic (2015-2016) would fit the bill. I have seen some lovely creations by Charlet Mallett using white embossing powder and ink! They're awesomely amazing! So I decided to try the same technique with my floral image:
I used Calypso Coral and Wild Wasabi inks to color in my embossed image, letting the color wash around the outside of the florals as well:
I used Flourishing Phrases (2016-2017) for the sentiments inside and out, stamping the "with Sympathy) on a piece of retired Wild Wasabi DSP, then stamped the fern from Butterfly Basics (2015) over top of the sentiment:
My final embellishment was a layered butterfly punched with the retired Small Butterfly punch....I put a Calypso Coral layer between two vellum layers and added some pearl accents. It's sad to need a sympathy card but I feel this one will uplift and encourage as well as comfort!
Cassidy had a little 24-hour tummy bug over the weekend, but based on this photo from a trip to Walmart, I think she must be feeling better!
Enjoy your day and be blessed!
