Sympathy Card

OK, here's another set I don't own, but now want to get.   This card was inspired by Jill on Splitcoast stampers..

This card uses 2 stamp sets I don't own!!!  The medallion stamp - again, borrowed from my Mom.   I stamped it as a background  on elegant eggplant cardstock using the same color ink.  Wrapping some old olive ribbon around this layer and then tying a knot on the front, then adhering it to a whisper white folded card (4 1/4 x 11, folded in half and the opening on the right).   The main image was stamped with the same ink on whisper white cardstock, then on some scrap whisper white cardstock, the flower and butterfly were both put on one block, like this....





Then stamped in elegant eggplant ink and cut out.   We colored those images using the aqua painter and the top of the ink pad, since that was sitting open...  Then if you look really close you might see some shimmer paint (champagne mist) on the butterfly and flower, very lightly painted on with a paint brush, the color is transparent so it just adds a shimmer to the color.  We put these images at opposite corners.  Adhered the stamped panel to a layer of riding hood red cardstock, then added it to the card.

ENJOY!
