MCT Thoughtful Thursday ~ my thoughts are with you!


Hello, today is Thoughtful Thursday at My Creative Time.  I created a card that none of us really like to create...a sympathy card.  Like masculine cards, sympathy card can be difficult to do.  I really try to not make them to ornate.



For the background I stamped first with one color, then for the next color I went slightly over the first color and did the same for the next color.  Just as if I were ink blending, but with a stamp.  Using my Misti I was able to stamp the purple flower (I know it looks black) several times to get a crisp, solid flower.
