Sympathy Card

Today I have an A2 sympathy card using the Fall Bouquet stamp set and a sentiment from the Magnolia Sympathy stamp set. I did some no-line coloring and used colored pencils and gamsol.

I stamped the image Fall Bouquet stamp set onto Neenah cardstock with Ink on 3 fade out ink.  I colored with Caran d'Ache colored pencils, spending a lot of time going over sections with different colors. There is no trick, you just keep blending until you're happy with the result and then I used gamsol to smooth everything out.

I then added some glitter paste to highlight certain areas and added some black, gold and white gel pen details as can be seen below. 

Finally I stamped the sentiment Magnolia Sympathy stamp set with Versamark ink and then heat embossed with gold glitter embossing powder onto heavy weight vellum (Bazzill).  I also created a frame out of gold vellum by using 2 rectangle dies I had in my stash.

Thank you for stopping by!
