Pink & Green Sympathy


The Dynamic Duos Challenge #65 this week is to use warm pink & soft green. I began by embossing the card base with a SU! ef, and colored it with pale pink chalk and a q-tip. The floral image was done with the coordinating SU! Fifth Avenue Floral stamp set, and was fussy cut and popped up on foam tape. I colored the white-embossed rose with chalks and added a few Copic accents for highlighting. The Hero Arts leaves were embossed with white ep on green vellum and hand cut in keeping with the soft look of this card. The sentiment is by SU! and was done with soft grey ink. This card went to a friend who'd just lost her mother.

Thanks for taking the time to stop by - I wish you a wonderful day!
