With Sympathy

Front of card

I liked the sketch at Sketch Saturday,¬†but as if one sketch wasn’t enough, I decided to add an extra element by challenging myself to make a one layer card. Almost a challenge too far – this was my third attempt!

I started by stamping the Hero Arts Delicate Blossoms stamp in Versafine Onyx Black, then painting on Pebeo masking fluid over the flowers. Using a Spellbinders die to cut an oval mask, I inked the card using Distress Ink in Dusty Concord, then I rubbed off the masking fluid to reveal the white flowers. The Clearly Besotted greeting, from the Brushed Greetings 2 set, finished off the card nicely. And at least I stamped it straight on my final attempt . . . .

I loved the card which is the inspiration for this week’s Muse challenge. Although it’s a very CAS card it has lots of little details in the die-cutting and I knew I could recreate this with some dies which I purchased recently off that well-known auction site.

The dies are by MFT and I cut the background from Docrafts adhesive-backed silver paper. The oval dies are by Spellbinders and the gem is from my stash. The greeting is by Papertrey Ink.
