It's my first time joining in Becky Oheler's Challenges...using a video and giving specific matting and colors. The goal for me is to use my Papertrey Ink stamps and find easier card formats to put together a card more quickly with less fuss and still have the impact I desire. So, I made this with a PTI set and used versamark ink and white pearl embossing powder. A happy "mistake" is there was some enchanted evening blue ink on my leaf that hadn't all been cleaned off before I stamped in the versamark...giving subltle blue hues and sheen to the leaves. The top was scored twice and a simple cream taffeta ribbon tied for ease of mailing. The ribbon was supposed to be blue but I didn't have any which matched, even with my copics to color, so I just kept with simple cream. The combination is stunning, enchanted evening and soft stone cardstock...I love it!!
Tell me, what do you think of this as a sympathy card...would you prefer the colors be lighter for the base and more embellishment? I am beginning a swap and need to make quite a few sympathy cards...so I would appreciate your thoughts on this.
Thanks for stopping by...have a blessed day!
