Collage Sympathy

I can't believe how many sympathy cards I've had to make so far this year. It doesn't get any easier trying to come up with something different. I really wanted to use this stamp and since I'm making the effort to utilize my supply of discontinued card stock the colors actually came together quickly. I stamped the image in versa mark ink on very vanilla card stock and embossed it using black embossing powder. I really wanted the image to have an antique/aged look so once I had colored the various elements on the image, I sponged the entire piece with close to cocoa ink and mounted it to the varying layers of close to cocoa and mellow moss card stock. The close to cocoa card base was stamped with the sanded background stamp using close to cocoa ink and the edges were also sponged with close to cocoa ink. I used spring flowers dsp mounted to mellow moss card stock for the remaining elements of the card and adhered everything to the card base.

Supplies Used: Paper: Very Vanilla, Close to Cocoa, Mellow Moss, Spring Flowers DSP; Ink: Versa Mark, Close to Cocoa, Various SU Markers; Stamps: Garden Collage, Sanded, Teeny Tiny Wishes; Other: Brads, Word Window Punch, Modern Label Punch, Large Oval Punch, Black Embossing Powder, White Gel Pen, Dimensionals
