Wow, lots of you must have been crossing your fingers for me last week for the Flourishes contest! I won and got to pick a stamp set of my choice. You'll be seeing this gorgeous Strawberries set on card soon. :)
Sadly, this is a sympathy card for my cousin, who had to have her kitty, Timone, put down a couple weeks ago. He was a special kitty and would come running when she called his name. Once she caught him on top of the fridge whacking dog treats onto the floor for the dog to eat! I'm so sorry for your loss, Steff.
I had a difficult time getting a dark black impression because the stamp was so solid, so I used my Warm gray and black Copic markers to enhance the shadows and add depth. I used BG10 on the wings and added some clear glitter, then used the gold glitter pen on the halo, with a little clear glitter on the sparkle spot.
Steff likes the Americana style, so I kept the card simple and used mainly red and black. A little stitching, sponging, and distressing give a vintage look.
Thanks for visiting!
