I have been playing with several new products in preparation for my Open House event this weekend. One of the new stamps I purchased fits perfectly with this week's Heart 2 Heart challenge. Sympathy cards are not my favorite, but from time to time are needed for rare situations. For the H2H challenge to create a sympathy card I have used the new Words of Comfort stamp set. I also incorporated the new Love Blooms stamp where I got to play with some of our new Alcohol Markers.
This first card uses the Flirty papers and the roses were colored in with markers. I then highlighted them with the new pink Glitz Glitter Gel. It's a vibrant, bright card designed to lift the spirit of the recipient!
This card uses the same rose, but in lighter more subtle colors. I used the Clementine papers with some neutral burlap ribbon and cream pearls. I chose to use the stamps in soft colors to fill in the outline of the rose. I lightly blended the colors together with a blending pen. Simply elegant.
