Comfort and Hope

Happy Wednesday, all!  I recently got the Comfort and Hope stamp after seeing it used on several cards in blogland....I am a sucker for all those little eclectic background-y images!  The Spot challenge had a very interesting color palette, and the TGIF challenge had a sketch challenge, so I combined the two for a sympathy card; they're nice to have on hand:

And here are the challenge prompts:

I gave a piece of Shimmery White cardstock a wash with some water and Cinnamon Cider ink to get started, then I stamped images from Comfort and Hope and Beautiful Autumn and fussy-cut them out

I stamped the sentiment with Blackberry Bliss and added some elements from the set behind it, also giving it a stitched scalloped border and a little bow with some retired Blackberry Bliss twine:

I love the font on this sentiment..I stamped it on the inside and stamped a little greenery behind it.

I thought the color combo would be odd but I really like it together, and it pushed me to use Blackberry Bliss, which I rarely use!  Thanks for popping in today!

Here is a little cheerful guy....eating some cotton candy at Cowtown Rodeo:

It's hard for me to look at that cotton candy....BLUE food, yuck! LOL!  Enjoy your day and be blessed!

This is such a pretty card. Blackberry Bliss is one of my faves but I haven't used it in a long time. Good luck in the challenges. Sawyer looks good in blue...matches his innocent eyes.

So beautiful. I love how you used the colors for leaves, wheat, pine cones, and a basket-weave background. That’s talent!

This is lovely - you nailed the watercolouring!! I'm with you on blue food - but that little chappie is so handsome he can be forgiven anytime!
