Quick CAS Sympathy

A couple weeks ago I was in need of a sympathy card ASAP (as soon as possible) and so I worked up a quick single layer design on a white card base using a stamp I just love from Penny Black. It is called Dreamy. In fact, I made two cards so that I had a spare on hand for future use. And, I added the sentiment from A Jillian Vance Design stamp set called Simply Said: Sympathy. That is another favorite set of mine.


I used my Tombow markers to add color directly to the stamp which was placed in my MISTI. That way I could keep adding more color until I got the look I was achieving. I worked with green for the stem and on the bloom I used blue and purple. After I added the sentiment with Versafine Onyx Black ink I then took some of the blue marker and scribbled onto a plastic lid and diluted it with water. Then with a brush I flicked some splats onto the card to add more design factors.

I am entering this in the Penny Black and More Challenge-Anything Goes. 

Thanks for your wonderful visits and comments.

God bless,
Verna

It's lovely, Verna. The stamp is wispy and sweet, as though it is releasing itself to the wind. The mixture of blues and black is beautiful. Hugs, de

Love that stamp you used Verna. Hoping to pick it up at a craft show Cheryl & I are going to at the week end. Beautiful cas card and a lovely finish with the splatters.
