Monday again? August already? How fast these summer days fly by! It's been so windy here these last couple of weeks I do what needs to be done in the garden and then escape to my stamp room. Mornings are nice, but it really picks up later in the day. While I do have some shelter from the wind in the garden, the noise of it is not at all peaceful. I'm hoping, however, that the card I'm sharing today will impart some measure of peace to the recipient as, you see, it is a sympathy card.
I've used a new set from Power Poppy called Soothing Sympathy. I stamped the rosemary four times without masking on Neenah 110 lb cardstock. Sponged ink on the card front, then colored with Prismacolor pencils and odorless mineral spirits, and brushed over the butterfly with Wink of Stella. For a little flourish I finished it off with the Memory Box Riviera Corner.
The images and sentiments in this set combine so beautifully I have a feeling it will be my go-to sympathy set for quite some time. I just hope I don't have to use it too often.
Wishing you a peaceful and beautiful day.
