Greetings, all! I needed another sympathy card, and so I thought I would use the colors of Color Throwdown #165 challenge, since I had some patterned paper that was pretty close. Here's the card:
The patterned paper came from DCWV's Cafe Mediterranean stack (love that one!). It is matted on a piece of SU Bayou Blue card stock. The butterfly, from PTI's Butterfly Dreams, was stamped on a butterfly die cut from watercolor paper using the PTI matching die. Ink used was SU Brocade Blue craft, which was clear-embossed, then the internal sections were hand-painted with PearlEx interference gold (the photo didn't pick up the beautiful shimmer, too bad) and the perimeter was inked with a Copic marker. The mum was die cut from matching paper from the same DCWV stack using PTI's Bloom Builders #3 die. The sentiment is from a retired PSX stamp, stamped on a Spellbinders Labels 13 die cut from SU Barely Banana. The embossed edge was treated to a few dots using an SU Brocade Blue marker. Pearls colored pale yellow with a Copic marker finished the card.
Hope you enjoy it, thanks for looking!
