Here for you!

Hello my crafty friends!

Hope you all have a wonderful week!

Today I decided to create a sympathy card, cause it’s one of them that you never know when you’ll need them and I don’t tend to create them often.

For this card I used the Altenew – Bamboo Rose stamp set, which is absolutely amazing and really very fun to use as it is very versatile. The sentiments are from the Avery Elle -With Sympathy stamp set which is great for the occasion, has plenty of sentiments and is very good value for money πŸ™‚ Hope you like it!

Quick Instructions:

To create my card, I stamped the roses in Versamark ink and used Clear embossing powder, then I heat embossed them. I painted the flowers and leaves using waterdowned Kuretake watercolors. I randomly shadow-stamped the music patterned on the background to create some interest and made some splatters with black watercolor.Then I used my Sizzix Big Shot Machine (one of my favorite tools) to diecut a circle and my trimmer and scissors to make a fish-tailed panel for my sentiments. Then I used Distress inks to ink the edges of my panels. In the end I stamped the sentiments and adhered everything together.
