Sympathy Card and a Giveaway

DSC_5483


This card was lots of fun to make. I found this card base with splatter already on it (A failed project from the past which I kept because I like the way the splatter looked even if it didn't work for the project I was working on at the time). It is splatter made with REAL PAINT--watered down a bit.

Then I found some greens that I thought looked great together. They are HERO ARTS in Neon Chartreuse, Tide Pool, Green Hills, and Mint Julip and I stamped a new set by HERO ARTS with them. A beautiful leaf set that will be coming out in February. The sentiment is also from HERO ARTS called um...With Deepest Sympathy. It's a wooden stamp and of course I stamped it using versafine onyx black, it works great! The leaf die is Lawn Fawn-the embossing makes it looks so real. The leafs look 3D by using a pop up between the layers and creating shadow with a darker green color.

That's it! pretty easy.

Lesson Learned: Don't throw it away, it might be perfect for something else later ;)

  17. Ted Cruz. The Texan made a name for himself as ted baker outlet firebrand during the government shutdown of late 2013. His opponents and supporters will doubtless invoke this image. cheap ted baker dresses Santorum has already called him a “bomb thrower.” In a speech this month to the Heritage Foundation in Washington, ted baker dresses sale Cruz made it clear he does not intend to soften his approach.
