JAI 83 Challenge, Sympathy Card
My sister lost her beloved dog to a stroke. I wanted to send her a sympathy card, and I also wanted to do the JAI 83 sketch challenge. Here's what I came up with:
I really wanted to do this sketch and I must have worked over the card with three different backgrounds and multiple embellishments what would have been more in keeping with the actual sketch. But all the embellies kept distracting from the simple image and message of the card which I thought was important to preserve. So in the end I just did a plain background (SU Certainly Celery cards stock sponged with Versamark for shading). The whimsical tree is from PTI's Wonderfully Whimsical set, the dog is from SU's A Little Love set (retired), and the sentiment is from SU's Hope For Comfort set (might be retired, not sure). The patterned paper was die cut with Spellbinders Pinked Circles and the seam binding was dyed with a Copic marker.
That's all for now, thanks for looking!
