Hiya, today I have something a bit different for you, a sympathy card for someone who has lost a beloved pet. It is a stamped card that I water coloured with my Distress Markers in a very simplistic style.
This is a stamp set that is actually in my own store because when I saw it I thought it was a rather different but also needed area to be covered by a card. Here is the link for you HERE and while you are there check out the other stamps that are there. I know the shop isn’t really where I want it to be yet but there is still a lot there including the infamous Pinflair Glue Gel lol!
Anyway back to the card, I decided to keep it pretty simple and so just stamped and embossed it using the cosmic shimmer detail black powder. Then as I said above, keeping to a really limited palette, I coloured the image in using my Distress Markers – see photo for colours.
I then cut around the image pretty tight and the sentiment separately, matting them onto the light grey card. I then got an A6 cream card and matted onto it a darker grey sheet from the DCWV stack as in the photo. I then positioned the image and sentiment as you see in the photo and just added a bone and paw prints onto the base layer and embossed that too. Finally just added some of the paper on the inside too. This not only looks nice it balances the weight of the front and back of the card. So here are the photos of my Stamped Pet Sympathy Card :-
So I hope you liked the card and don’t forget if you like the stamp set that you can pop along to my store and pick a set up there – well I got to give myself a bit of promotion lol! but in the meantime big hugs and have a great craft day,
