You're in my prayers


This is another card made with a background designed by Lavinia Stamps for Imagination Stamps on to which I stamped the lovely Penny Black 'sparklers', the Whipper Snapper Designs sentiment stamp , both inked with Stazon pumpkin and the lovely Penny Black butterfly edge stamp inked up with Stazon saddle brown.


This is for:

4 crafty chicks 247: sympathy
Penny Black May: trees or nature
Fashionable stamping 98: old favourites - forgotten, but favourite stamp (all three stamps)
Little tangles 56: clean and simple
Scrappy hands 38: clean and simple
Pile it on 69: not cute
Crafty sentiments: anything goes

With sympathy


I have a couple of boxes of cards as church and it's a sad fact of life that sympathy cards and 'thinking of you' type cards tend to sell quite quickly, so I need to make a few to improve stocks.

The background is designed by Lavinia Stamps for Imagination Stamps. I stamped on to this using one of my favourite stamps, Penny Black's 'sparklers', inked with memento grape jelly, also stamping the corner and the Dovecraft sentiment inked the same. Because the background has a sheen to it, I had to dry the ink with my heat gun and the corner had almost smudged a bit, but I decided I quite liked it as it blended in with the ethereal look of the whole picture.
