I was in need of a special sympathy card for a friend who lost her mother recently so I sat down this week and made her a card. I wanted it to be soft, pretty and heartfelt. I love how it turned out! I hope it eases her sorrow and helps comfort her in this time of great sadness.
To create the background, I used my daubers to rub a bit of Turbo Teal and Sour Lemon ink onto my Gel press. I then stamped the press with the largest rose image to lift some of the ink. After it was inked to my satisfaction, I overstamped the rose onto the cardstock using Turbo Teal ink. Once done, I flicked some silk onto the panel and colored a few leaves using Color Splash watercolor pencils and a small brush and attached them to the card. I then used my sewing machine to stitch a few lines on the panel and over the center of the leaves so that I could lift them and form the dimension them later. I stamped the sentiment onto an oval diecut then embossed with gold embossing powder.
