Hi there. I have one of those cards today that we unfortunately need but never want to have to send. This is the fourth person we know that has sadly passed away since the start of this year and hopefully there will be no more for some time to come.
I used a stamp from Penny Black called Lofty and stamped it three times on to a snippet of white card using Archival Black Ink and WOW Clear Embssing powder heat embossed over the top, and then stamped it three more times using second generation ink. I wanted to make an oval shape of it but my oval dies were just too small so I pencilled round the outside of the largest die and cut the shape by hand which made it just large enough.
I found another snippet of white card and embossed it with a Couture Creations Embossing Folder called Compassionate. My white base card was roughly 7" x 5" and I cut the embossed piece to fit this leaving a space at the bottom for the sentiment which I again stamped in Black Archival and heat embossed with the Clear EP.
I was going to leave it black and white but decided it did seem a bit stark so introduced some colour with the Tumbled Glass Distress Ink which I applied with some blending foam.
Before I go I would like to introduce a new follower who is Mac Mable and her blog is here. She is very clever with her inks and watercolouring and uses lots of great techniques so if you haven't been to her blog before you will find lots there to inspire.
Thank you for visiting today and I'll see you again soon.
I would like to enter the following challenges:
Pixie's Crafty Workshop - Weeks 281/2 where we use up our snippets of card and paper etc.
