Love & sympathy

  • SU!- love & sympathy
  • Altenew- floral shadow
  • Tattered lace- circles dies
  • Papermania- black/white baker's twine
  • Archival 'jet black' ink pad
  • Versamark 'frost' dazzle ink pad
  • Black, white and teal cardstock
To create the watermark background, I stamped my floral images on to the teal card stock using versamark. I have the dazzle version of this ink pad so it gives a slight shimmer without being over powering. I trimmed this down to fit my card blank, leaving a slight border. I then wrapped twine around my panel and tied in a knot.
I stamped my sentiment on to white card and die cut into a circle. I die cut a slightly bigger black cardstock circle and layered with the sentiment matt. I attached the circle sentiment using foam, positioned off to one side of my card to follow the sketch. I added the completed panel on to a white card blank, again using foam for dimension. To finish, I added the coordinating sentiment inside the card.

Challenge I would like to enter:
