OLW99 - Sympathy Roses


Here is today's card and I am excited to share some big news.  My friend Susan at Simplicity has asked me to come on board as a new member along with the ubber-talented Ardyth Percy-Robb as well.  We will be part of a very talented team.  If you are unfamiliar with the OLW challenges,  they are to create a one layer card with a new twist every week.  My first challenge will be coming up on August 22...so fun.
So for today's card;  I am playing along with this week's OLW challenge...to find inspiration from Susan's Pinterest board of Pure Inspirations.  There is a card posted there that totally inspired me.  I am also adding my card to a few challenges at Splitcoast as well.
I created this one by masking the oval, stamping with an old SU set I have not used in ages and coloured with Copics.  I sponged on Distress inks and added the water droplets and the sentiment from Paper Smooches. 
Thanks so much for stopping by....the long weekend is almost here!!

Supplies:  stamps; SU, Paper Smooches/ Distress inks/ Copics/ pearls/ twine

Karen, what a pretty card! The coloring is perfect, and I love how the backgound blotched a bit. Adds depth and makes me think of tears...so appropriate for the sentiment!
