sympathy corner

Welcome to my crafty blog and another card with one of the new releases from Julie Hickey Designs – this time it’s the ‘fancy foliage’ stamp. I’ve taken the layout from the sketch at CAS Colours & Sketches, together with the new theme of ‘sympathy’ from Addicted to CAS

I started with a piece of white card that I’d cut to fit an A6 card blank. I lined up the stripes section from Julie’s ‘backgrounds #1’ stencil, masked it off apart from the top 3 lines and blended ‘pale papaya’ inkinto it. It didn’t reach right across the corner of the card so I repositioned it, lining up the stripes, and then repeated the blending. After removing the stencil, I blended the ink round the corner as well.

I then stamped the ‘fancy foliage’ across the corner and watercoloured it using ‘pale papaya’, ‘soft succulent’ & ‘evening evergreen’.

All I then needed to do was add the sentiment and attach it to the card blank.

You may have noticed a little change to the backgrounds on my cards over the last couple of days. I’m having a great weekend with my sister (and time for crafting), but I forgot to bring my photoboard with me so I’ve made good use of her bread board!
