Deepest Sympathy

Hi and welcome!  Today I have the thrill of being guest stamper at Color Throwdown, because my card was randomly drawn as Featured Stamper.  The colors this week are just gorgeous - check them out:


The colors are kraft, pink and pale green.  Of course, when I saw those colors, I immediately thought of flowers!



I wanted to try pencil coloring on kraft after seeing some beautiful cards on my friend, Sonja's blog (and having received one from her in real life!)  So I took a new Unity Stamp flower stamp and stamped it onto some Desert Storm cardstock.  I then very loosely colored it with pink, green and white Prismacolor pencils.  The sentiment comes from Verve and is one of my favorite sympathy sentiments.

I layered the panel onto black and Pink Pirouette and then onto a Desert Storm cardbase.  To finish the card, I kept it pretty low-key and only added some Rainstones.



Thanks for visiting.  Be sure to check out the fabulous creations from the team at Color Throwdown - they amaze me every week with their gorgeous cards!


Products used:  Lean, Pretty Please (Unity Stamps), Deepest Sympathy (Verve)
Ink:  Black Licorice Hybrid (MFT)
Cardstock:  Desert Storm, Black, Pink Pirouette
Dies:  Blueprints 20
Accessories:  Prismacolor Pencils, Rainstones (PTI)

Cheers
Karren
