Wednesday already...anybody besides me feel like their week is flying by at a breakneck pace? Praise the Lord for stamping retreats, fabulous women who are crafty and supportive, and three days to relax. I have all that to look forward to this weekend while my boys are home fending for themselves. *smile*
Today's card is a fairly simple sympathy card that my group at work did in class yesterday.
I am sharing it today because for them, the concept of coloring on stamps with markers, is a new one.
This stamp from Because I Care sort of begs for this technique especially if you want the stem and leaves to be a different color than the flower.
The faux pressed flower idea wasn't new for this group but here we combined the two.
So, to start, the card base is a half sheet of Not Quite Navy.
The flower is colored with Not Quite Navy and Old Olive markers, stamped on Neenah Baronial Ivory and layered with a larger panel of Mellow Moss. The sentiment is stamped at the same time with Not Quite Navy. We used the Square Lattice embossing folder to press these two layers together and then mounted them directly to the card.
Thanks for dropping in today. See you Friday!
