Sympathy

Here's another card that I made for my club in August. I was in need of a sympathy card and I know that these are usually needed right away. You don't always know when you will need one so my club members were happy to have one in their stash of cards ready to go.

The So Saffron was stamped using clear block C. I inked up the block without a stamp and then stamped the block on Whisper White cardstock. I like the looks of this technique! The flower was stamped on Pool Party with Not Quite Navy ink and then I used an aquapainter to pull some of the ink into the flower. After it dried I fussy cut it out.

Stamps: Fabulous Florets, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Ink: So Saffron, Pool Party, Not Quite Navy
 Cardstock: Not Quite Navy, Pool Party, So Saffron, Whisper White
Accessories: Block C, Scallop Trim border punch, Finial Press embossing folder, sponge, dimensional

Happy Stampin'!
Shelley

I love the inked acrylic block technique. It accents the stamped image beautifully!
