Well, one type of card that is always in demand is sympathy cards it seems. And, the older I get the more those types are needed. So with that thought in mind I decided to use my new Altenew Garden Hydrangea set along with A Jillian Vance Design sentiment set called Simply Said: Sympathy. I like the big hydrangea for the focal image and I thought the large script sentiment worked well with it. Now the hydrangea is a multi-step set so please excuse if it is not perfectly aligned. Sometimes I have issues with that.
For the flower I used the Gina K. Designs ink colors: Powder Blue, Wild Wisteria, Wild Lilac and Edible Eggplant. I also used the Gina K. Designs inks Grass Green, Fresh Asparagus and Christmas Pine for the leaves. The sentiment was done with the Edible Eggplant. The stamp images were done using my MISTI so that I could get fairly good coverage. After coloring the images I took a white paint pen and put some dots in the centers of the hydrangea blossoms.
I fussy cut all of the leaves and the flower and then added them to my card base. The finishing touch was to add some blue rhinestones.
I am entering this in the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge- Fantastic Florals.
Well, here it is the beginning of the weekend already. And, I hardly got anything accomplished with card making this week. I best not waste too much time watching movies. LOL Some free previews were featured so we took advantage and watched a few of them. I understand there might be more this next week. I will try to confine it to the evening only. Whatever your plans I hope you have a great weekend. And, once again thanks for stopping in and for all the wonderful comments.
