Week 13 AWH Colour Creations Blog Hop - Crumb Cake
August 28, 2018
Today's card is one of the hard cards we need to make, a sympathy card. Words really are never enough, but they are important to say to the people you care about. I don't think there is any better way to say those words from afar, than with a handmade card.
I have used the Rooted in Nature stamp set from the 2018 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue. I created a water wash onto Shimmery White cardstock with a few drops of re-inker and my aquapainter. I used Crumb Cake for the ground, and Pool Party for the sky and Shaded Spruce for the tree. I added a few ink splatters and water splatters for added interest.
The sentiment is also from the Rooted in Nature stamp set, and is stamped in Soft Suede to stand out a little more against the Crumb Cake. Here is my colour combination.
I hope the recipient of this card can feel the love and caring thoughts for them that it hopefully conveys.
Now it's time to head back to Catherine Proctor's blog to see what the other Art With Heart team ladies have been creating with Crumb Cake this week.
