With Sympathy

Today's Pleasant Poppies card was inspired by the lovely and talented Jen Mitchell. It's pretty much a CASE (Copy And Share Everything), but I did change up the colours and the sentiment.

You'll remember this post when I had some pieces of Island Indigo sitting out on my stamp space and I wanted to find a way to use them. Well...apparently I need to tidy up a bit more often, because some of that Island Indigo is STILL on my stamping space - EEK!

Just as well, because I thought it would be great to recreate Jen's card.

Thankfully, I don't *need* a sympathy card right now, but when I do, I know I'll have one ready to go. Because really...who wants to create a sympathy card when you NEED one? Are you really in the mood to create a sympathy card when you need one? I don't think anyone is.

As I mentioned, I started off with the piece of Island Indigo Cardstock left over from class (and since then, creating my husband's cards for the office). I then trimmed up my Very Vanilla Cardstock, drew a line around it with my Island Indigo marker (not free hand, though I supposed I could try that too!), added a post-it note mask and stamped the poppy image in Staz-ON.

I used my watercolour pen and ink squished into the top of my Island Indigo and Pear Pizzazz Ink pads to add colour to the image.

The image was then adhered to my piece of Island Indigo and added to the front of the card.

The sentiment (from Teeny Tiny Wishes) was stamped below the image in Island Indigo Ink.

What do you think?
