Sympathy Card – Time Out Challenge #95

I have made a sympathy card for the latest challenge at Time Out Challenges….there was an optional twist of distressing but I decided not to incorporate that for my card…the main flower image of my card is from Mama Elephant Freesias stamp set…

I die cut the front panel from watercolour cardstock using cross stitched rectangle die and then stamped the flower image using Versamark ink…I heat embossed this with some white embossing powder and masked it with a hand cut paper mask…
I then dabbed some weathered wood Distress Ink on an acrylic block and mixed it with a lot of water and quickly did a kind of a wash all over…I also used the same ink mixed with less water and splattered it over the panel…

I then removed the mask and coloured in the image using Gansai Tambi watercolors…once dry,I stamped the sentiment using Versafine onyx black ink and adhered the front panel to a plain white card base…

Instead of adding embellishments to my card,I first used my sparkle marker over the image and then added some glossy accents for a bit of shine and dimension without going over the top..

Thank you so much for stopping by to take a look at my card today…Hope you will have a happy and blessed day today…!!
