Apothecary Art Sympathy Card

I had this colored image lying around for a few weeks and thought I'd better put it to use before it got all mangled on my desk.  I copied the technique shown by Amy Celona who does gorgeous work.  This was my first attempt so I stuck to her colors, etc so I could compare at the end.  It's not as good as Amy's but I'm happy with it and will use this technique again.

I decided to use the Freshly Made Sketch challenge and the SUO Challenge to use something from the soon-to-end Occasions Mini.

On to the card.  I decided to keep a monochromatic look and in keeping with the look, went with a sympathy sentiment.


Here's the sketch I worked with:


Products used (all Stampin' Up!)

Stamps:  Apothecary Art; Warmest Regards (retired)
Cardstock:  Not Quite Navy; Whisper White; Regals DSP
Ink:  Black Stazon; Basic Black
Accessories:  Watercolor Wonder Crayons; Blender Pen; White Taffeta ribbon (dyed with Not Quite Navy ink); Pearls

Cheers
Karren
