Grey and yellow!

Hello my friends!

Hope you all have a beautiful weekend! Today, when I woke up (and not for very long, cause as everyone knows the weather in the UK is changing by the hour -lol!) it was all nice and sunny! The kind of sunshine that makes things glow! So I felt like using yellow! (But grey seemed to be also fitting as now it’s all grey and dull outside… hahaha!)

Anyway, with this color combination in mind I decided to create a card and since grey is not a very happy color…I made a sympathy card! I used to really dislike sympathy cards because of the occasion they are for, however lately I have started seeing the beauty in their tranquility and their expression of feelings. I have to admit mine didn’t turn out to be very soft in color (for some reason I felt that any lighter yellow was too soft to create some contrast) but I hope it is still suitable for the occasion.

For my project I used the following supplies.


  • Kraft Cardstock paper – white
  • The Works -Black craft card 200gsm
  • Archival Ink Jet Black
  • Kuretake Gansai Tambi: No 33, No43, No 20
  • Tombow Dual Brush Marker N15
  • Altenew : Bamboo Rose stamp set
  • Avery Elle -With Sympathy stamp set
  • Versamark Ink
  • Wow! Metallic Silver Regular embossing powder
  • Heat tool
  • Circle nested dies (unbranded)
  • Sizzix Big Shot Machine
  • Paper trimmer
  • Waterbrush
  • Black gel pen
  • Ruler
  • Pen
  • Double sided tape

With this card I entered the following challenges. I really suggest you visit these blogs as there are loads of amazing projects to get inspired from!

  4. I agree. I’ve never really enjoyed making a sympathy card, but I try to make it with all the love that I can show the person who receives it. That usually helps. Thank you for sharing you work of art with us at Word Art Wednesday.
