Blue sympathy

Ah boo hoo, back to work tomorrow - but at least everyone else will have been off work too so there shouldn't be a gazillion emails to get through!  I'd a busy day today, out powerhosing the front driveway and tidying up, I was totally frozen by the time I was finished!    Anyway, one hot bath and a bit of crafty time later, here's a wee sympathy card for my stash.

I've used this old stamp from Whipper Snapper - coloured with watercolour pencils and popped up on dimensionals.  I sprayed my BG with water and tapped on some blue brushos.  Clear bling from stash.


  1. Great speckled background - I can never get splodges to look right! Sympathy cards seem to be the ones we need most of, unfortunately.

  2. I love when you use that Whipper Snapper stamp. It's so versatile and can be used for so many different kinds of cards. I'm also lovin' your Brushos background. Need to give that a try. Glad you enjoyed your time off. I guess it's "nose to the grindstone" time again, though.

  3. This is absolutely stunning!!! It is certain to warm anyone's hurting heart. Hugs, Autumn

  9. What an elegant card! I am always looking for beautiful sympathy cards and this really fills the bill. I am so impressed with how realistic it looks and how you brought those flowers to life through your coloring skills. I also think the splatter effect looks stunning. This is gorgeous and I'm so glad you shared your skills with us for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!
