I've no sympathy cards in my stash, and I'd loved Tracey's beautiful card over at the Muse challenge #158 so I thought I'd have a go.
For my first card I had a play with my new heat tool, the last one went to the craft room in the sky a while ago. I don't think this image is quite striking enough to carry off this look, but the grey colouring in the background helps a bit. I also think it would have been better with the sentiment stamped in grey.
So I had another go, and this time stamped my image in black ink. I coloured my flowers with watercolour pencils, and tried to copy Tracey's two-toned flowers. I like the effect, but still think this card is a bit boring. I tried to jazz it up a bit by adding Spectrum Noir sparkle to the flowers and clear gloss to the jar.
Ah well, it's another 2 cards for my stash ;)
