Basic River Sympathy...


Just popping in quickly with a card I made using the Dynamic Duos colour combo and this week's Retro Sketch...

I was asked for a couple of sympathy cards last week and realised that I don't have many in my collection so made a note that I nsed to make a few more. They're not cards I think about making until I need them but then sometimes I don't have time so it's always good to have a few on hand. I thought these colours would work well with the silhouette image from Just Believe so I started with that...

I stamped the image on Very Vanilla and embossed with black EP then sponged River Rock ink over the lower portion. The layers in the background are a combination of First Edition dsp, Basic Black dsp and River Rock cardstock stamped with the swirl from Everything Eleanor using River Rock ink. The ribbon is Very Vanilla seam binding that I dyed with River Rock reinker & water then dried with a heat gun. I added an antique brad to the double bow and some black brads in the top corner. The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes.

That's all for now... hope you're having a great week wherever you are!
