Sharing a sympathy card idea today- using mute and somber colors to convey our sorrow.
Sympathy card idea
I first painted my background ombre on a kraft cardstock using thick acrylic paint. If you observe closely you will see the background ombre goes from (top to bottom) a dark grey color to a white color. I then used this chevron mask by Prima to add the chevrons. The chevrons go from a grey tone to a completely black color.
I die cut and pressed the little label using a new Fiskars die and the Fuse. I then stamped my sentiment using this All year greetings stamp by Fiskars on some purple cardstock (I am sure you remember that Purple PL spread I made using the Bazzil Cardstock pack? Well, I have plenty left still 🙂
I stamped the sentiment using a couple of different black inks but this one was the best ink by far! Crisp and clean stamping. Which almost never happens when I craft!
I got a huge chunk of time this afternoon to craft and I thoroughly enjoyed every single minute of it. Not a second of it was wasted in cleaning up!
It was such a joy to craft a project from start to end without having to stop in between. Of late, I have only got chunks of crafting time- ten minutes here and there. So today, I cut paper, got my hands inky, and pulled out my paints with complete disregard to time 🙂
