Serene Scene

Here's a sympathy card made for my stash. I used SU! 1st generation and 2nd generation Upsy Daisy stamp sets with black Versamark ink, and immediately heat-embossed them with clear ep. I sponged the bottom with red, the middle with orange, and the top with yellow inks from Colorbox to create the sky. I stamped silhouette images of birds and a dragonfly with SNSS images, and added a white heat-embossed sympathy sentiment, matting the image panel with black and placing it on a vanilla card base. I added a die-cut grassy border in black along the bottom and tied a piece of vanilla ribbon from my stash for the finishing touch.

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:

Double D challenges - Just wing it

Thanks for stopping by and I wish you a fabulous Friday!

I have always loved that stamp set, and yet never got to purchase it. Your sky is beautiful and I like the way the daisies silhouette. Gorgeous.

Absolutely beautiful, Carol! Love Upsy Daisy...been quite awhile since she's seen ink though. Love how you sponged the colors of the sun really makes this card come to life! Something as simple as sponging color on a card can really add so much. Just perfect and makes for a beautiful sympathy card! TFS and happy Friday, my friend! Hugs~
