Sympathy Cards

Following on from yesterday's post, here are two cards I made today for my two cousins.

Painted vellum card

Pearlescent 5 x 7 card.  The Lily image (Art Impressions stamp) was stamped on vellum/parchment with stone grey Stazon, and then painted with my acrylic paints, and embossed from the underside.  Mounted on to black silk mirri and some card-candi added as imitation brads.  Computer generated sentiment, also mounted on black silk mirri. 

This technique of painting with acrylic was a bit of an experiment, as I had seen one of the Paint Fusioneers do something similar with ivy on parchment, and it looks so effective, that I thought I would give it a go.  Next time I try the technique, I will emboss the stamped image first, and take it from there.

Sympathy Card with Poppies

Again 5 x 7 pearlescent card, with a simple poppy stamped image (Penny Black Stamp) and computer generated sentiment, both mounted on purple silk mirri card, and a strip of purple flower ribbon added.  (there isn't a smudge or a crease on the sentiment - looks like my camera lens needs cleaning!)

Hi Mags although it is such a sad occasion your cards are beautiful and elegant they will be much appreciated for sure.
