I woke this morning with a very clear vision of a sympathy card, design, colors and all. I immediately got up and put ink to paper to capture my idea. I didn't have any English sympathy card on hand, so I decided to use an English sentiment and found something that could work for a sympathy card in the retired Small Sayings set. The other images come from the retired hostess set called God's Beauty.
The colors I paired are two new In Colors - Lost Lagoon and Mossy Meadow. The one detail the picture couldn't capture is the shimmer on the butterly. After stamping it in Mossy Meadow ink, I covered the butterfly with green Pearl Ex pigment. It captures the light beautifully when you move the card.
The design was inspired by the Hand Stamped Sentiments Sketch #199.
