Muse Sympathy

Hi!  I've made a few cards over the last week but have been a bit slack at posting them.  Need to get a move on before the various challenges finish.

This card was made for the current Muse challenge as well as the latest Pin Sights Challenge.  From the Pin Sights Challenge, my eye was drawn immediately to the second to bottom row with the soft flowers and white tones.  From Jenni's Muse card, I effectively reversed her card to come up with this one:

I kept the blue tones and the thinking of you elements of Jenni's card, but used a cover plate die over an ink-blended bakcground.  The sentiment is die-cut from black and then painted with clear sparkle pen.  I finished with some jewel drops.

Thanks for visiting.


Products used:

Ink:  Broken China, Faded Jeans Distress Oxide Ink
Cardstock:  White, Black, Bristol Smooth
Dies:  Bed of Roses (Essentials by Ellen), With Sympathy (Avery Elle)
Accessories:  Sea Breeze Nuvo Jewel Drops, Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkle Pen
