Today is World Card Making Day and that means I should be making lots of cards. Well, my old friend Art Ritus is visiting and to tell the truth, he is making a real pest of himself, so therefore I only got one card done. None the less, one is better then none. So with that in mind let's show you what I did.
As you can see it is just a simple scene but I always think that scenes are perfect for a sympathy card. Especially for the masculine type.
I used images from the Kitchen Sink Stamps line. This particular set is called Multi Step "Birch Trees" EX-LRGC 001. I also used a Kitchen Sink Stamps sentiment which is found on the Simple Sentiments MINI 006 stamp set.
The first part of the trunks and branches were stamped in with Gina K. Designs Kraft ink which I stamped off first onto scratch paper before adding it to my white card stock. Then the next step for the trunks was done with Gina K. Designs Charcoal Brown. Next was to add the leaves so I did the first step with Gina K. Designs Grass Green and used Gina K. Designs Christmas Pine for the second step. To finish the scene I then added the woodpecker with the Charcoal Brown. I sponged in some Pool ink which is an older pad I owned called Sea Brights and was made by Ranger. The last thing then was to add the sentiment with the Charcoal Brown. My card was then ready to layer to some dark brown card stock and then to the white card base.
I hope all the visitors you have this weekend are much easier on you than Art is. Thanks for stopping by.
