Today's card didn't start off being a Sympathy card but.....
I was inspired by the image over at Pinterest
I loved the colours and the way the feathers where floating in the background.
I used the colours as my inspiration and the feather stencil from Stamplorations.
I first blended distress inks through the stencil, then popped on white embossing paste
and whilst it was still wet added micro beads.
These beads give such a pretty shine, texture and dimension.
It was at this stage I thought it might be a sympathy card as the colours muted,
because of the white paste and I loved how it was looking.
I masked off a rectangle and lightly blended blue distress ink.
I stamped a rain falling stamp with versamark and lightly dusted perfect pearls powders
over it to give a subtle shine.
I thought this represented the feathers in the background on the inspiration photo.
The sentiment was stamped in grey distress ink and three pearls added to finish.
I also did a card in clear embossing paste with white stamping and doodling,
which produced a much brighter colour-way.
It was this card I thought I would be using when I started.
However I preferred the muted one and went with the sympathy card idea.
Lets hope I don't need to send it for a very long time x
