With sympathy

For this card I used one of my favourite Penny Black stamps which I always think goes well on a sympathy card. I randomly stamped the sparklers stamp inked with memento grape jello on to a piece of textured card, matting this on to the white card blank. I then used the same stamp inked with versamark and heat embossed with detail white on to the square of purple card. The sentiment stamp was from Hobbycraft inked with the grape jelly again.

This is for:

Penny black and friends August: anything goes

De Egel 104: no designer paper

A gem of a challenge 16: anything goes
QKR stampede 402: anything goes

The artistic stamper August: anything goes

  3. Beautiful sympathy card and love the white embossing against the purple background and lovely design papers behind it. Gorgeous. Thanks for again sharing with us at Double Trouble.

  4. The monochromatic approach to your card is gorgeous. The embossing really stands out against the purple. Thanks for sharing with us at Double Trouble :)

  5. The contrast of the white and purple is stunning, lovely sympathy card. Thank you for joining us at Double Trouble.

  6. You are right. That stamp does make a pretty sympathy card. I always find them so difficult to do. Love Dawn x

  7. Sympathy cards are difficult to make but yours is just beautiful - the stamp you used is perfect for a sympathy card as are your colours and the overall design. Truly a beautiful card! Thanks so much for playing at Penny Black Saturday Challenge!
