|Sympathy card featuring the Flowering Flourishes, Flower Shop and Sweet Essentials stamp sets.|
As you can see, I took a few liberties with the sketch, but I think the basic layout is still there. I wanted the design to be very clean, so I omitted a few layers.
I stamped the flower on vellum and heat embossed it in white. Then I coloured the back side of the vellum with Wisteria Wonder and Blushing Bride markers before punching it out with the Pansy Punch. Colouring on the back of the vellum gives a very soft, muted look. Kinda pretty, no? I skipped the ribbon and settled for just a single pearl by way of embellishment. Not an easy feat for me, as you well know.
If you haven't give this sketch a try yet, give it a shot. There are tons of possibilities. I'll be back later in the week with another take on it...in the meantime, here's hoping the week passes as quickly as the weekend did!!
