Commissioned sympathy card


This is a commissioned sympathy card using an 8 x 8 card blank which I randomly stamped using one of my favourite Penny Black stamps, sparklers, inked with stazon gothic purple.I also inked the edges and lightly brushed the card.. I used a piece of Love to Craft Papillon paper from Poundland. This was stamped with the 'With Sympathy' Hobbycraft stamped inked with the stazon gothic purple, embossed using a Todo Henna letterpress die, brushed with the stazon, cut with a todo die, inked round the edges. Butterflies were added from the Papillon range, decorated with purple pearls, which were also added to the corners of the card.


This is for:
