Comfort and Peace

Hello and Welcome
I am on a quest to replenish my stash of sympathy cards.  
I made some for a friend and now I need some for my personal use.  It is difficult to make them at the last minute I find.

So here's what I did to create my card.
  • I began with a piece of white cardstock.  I got out my Gel Plate and pressed some Carved Pumpkin Distress Oxide ink on one side and some Crackling Campfire on the other side.
  • Using my brayer, I blended the colours together.
  • I had some grasses I picked up on a walk (before the snow came) and I laid them onto the plate, then rubbed my white cardstock over the plate to lift the print.
  • The ink dries super fast so I was able to place the panel into my Misti and stamped the sentiment from Penny Black using some Versafine Clair ink.
  • I splattered with my white Posca pen and added 3 little black gems.
  • I glued the panel onto a piece of red cardstock, then onto a white card base.

Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.
