A sympathy card...


This is the type of card that no one ever wants to make...this week's CAS challenge on SCS is to make one. I got a recent shipment of Copic's new XpressIt blending cardstock and cut into it for this card. It coloured well although I notice some tiny white/light spots (?fibres?) in the paper that did not take the grey ink. Hmmm...will have to play a bit more. It does add some interest and texture to the dove! I added some silver glitter on the dove using my silver spica pen. The image was matted in black, then mellow moss and popped up. I added the sentiment and 3 pearls for a simple design. Hope you like it!

Supplies:

Paper:  GinaK pure luxury white, SU basic black & mellow moss, Copic Xpress It blending cardstock
Ink:  Memento black
Stamps:  A muse (peace & cheer set, in my thoughts)
Accessories:  copics, pop dots, black pearls (kaiserkraft)

Adore the simplicity of this card.

Hey, I am checking this blog using the phone and this appears to be kind of odd. Thought you'd wish to know. This is a great write-up nevertheless, did not mess that up.
