So Sorry for Your Loss

Don't miss my GIVEAWAY HERE 

on my 

30 Cats in 30 Years post!!! 


Hi, Friends.....

I'm back with a sympathy card to share. Seems like I rarely use my Hero Arts stamps, but I saw ABNH's Sympathy-themed Challenge. I am low on these kind of cards and this was a good chance to make one or two before one is needed. 

I used a very pretty (but ancient) HA stamp I found at a thrift store. I heat embossed the image in white and watercolored with Distress Markers. Turned out that I liked this card so much that I made two of them for my stash!

Supplies used include:
Hero Arts - Ribboned Iris F699 (retired)
Versafine ink
WOW! Embossing Powder - Opaque Bright White Regular
"So sorry for your loss" from Unity - Beautiful Life, Blessed Memories (Feb. 2015 Sentiment Kit)
Versafine ink in Smokey Gray
Distress Markers for watercoloring
Winnie & Walter - Essentials: Audrey Cutaways die set
Winnie & Walter - Essentials: Katharine Cutaways die set
Canson - Mixed Media Paper
Misc cardstock from stash
Ribbon from stash

Hope you liked my card. Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by for a look.
