Simple Sympathy...


Happy Monday!

I hope you had a wonderful weekend! I spent mine cleaning up our basement, throwing lots of old stuff...what a refreshing feeling!
I`ve also spent the past week nursing my oldest son who had surgery on his badly broken arm last monday. Unfortunately it was the right arm, but he is much better now, and he`s back at school:-)



I`ve made a sympathy card today, using a couple of images from I Brake For Stamps.
I stamped the leaves two times on a Long Classic Rectangles LG die cut and colored with Distress Inks. I popped up the leaves with dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment on a Labels Eleven die cut and placed it in the middle. The border at the bottom is Fleur De Lis Borderabilities Petite.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and have a wonderful evening!

Hey Yvonne,

Back again with a question on your beautiful watercoloring. I never can get a crisp stamped image on watercolor paper. I have even tried a smoother watercolor paper, one with less tooth, but there are always areas that don't get stamped. It's one of the reasons I switched from watercolor to Copics. What kind of paper do you use for watercoloring and which ink do you stamp with?

Thanks so much for always generously sharing your tips and techniques!

Loretta said...

Yvonne, have I mentioned lately how much I love your sense of style? This is another stunning sample of the beauty that is in your heart!

((hugs)) my friend!

Nicest "sympathy" card I've seen.

I like that it could be for the death of a loved one, or even any "other" disappointment life swings from time to time when you want a friend to know you care.... nice saying!

I'm so sorry to hear about your son, Yvonne! Any child's hurt (any age) is a big hurt to the Mom, also. I hope he'll heal completely and be good as new soon. Beautiful card. I love your color and design choices. Such a wonderful sentiment for a sympathy card.
