Sympathy Pines

Well, we all know that it's better to create sympathy cards ahead of time rather than trying to make one when your heart is heavy. The Sympathy challenge on the DRS Designs Blog this week is the perfect opportunity to work on a few.

I didn't have a lot of time when I sat down to make my challenge card. I knew coloring an image was out of the question and since I haven't played with glossy cardstock in a while, I decided to get it out and do a little heat embossing.

I heat embossed the Silhouette Majestic Pines (757L) with black embossing powder and then sponged it with blue ink for the sky and green ink for the ground. I used a yellow Copic Marker for the moon. The Tiny With Sympathy sentiment (263A) tag was also heat embossed and sponged with ink. I added a dry embossed layer of polka dots to the background and each layer was matted with black.  The light blue cardstock base measures 4.25" x 5.5."

I hope I've inspired you to stamp today! Thanks for stopping by!
