With Sympathy - for Katie
This flower stamp is from Inkadinkado; have not used it before. After stamping it with Memento London Fog ink for a softer image, I got out my water color pencils and set to work. The pencils are from Staedtler, Nos. 6, 25 & 38. Before going over the image with my aqua pen, I added some shading. The focal point rose is done on SU's Very Vanilla paper and placed on top a Concord Crush mat and card base. I used dimensionals to make the tone-on-tone frame stand out. I scored a line edge to complete the main image. Inside, the sentiment (no stamp company name on it) is inked with the London Fog and VersaMark. I heat embossed it with clear embossing powder from Ranger. The inside paper also has a scored edge.
Although making this card triggered some painful memories for me, I am glad to have done it. Katie Renz, Rest in Peace.
