Condolences

Hello. Playing in the Freshly Made Sketch challenge today.





I just picked up this Penny Black leaf die that was discounted at one of my local craft stores. I used alcohol inks on yupo paper to create the color variations.

Background panels are done using a leaf background stamp and heat embossing it with clear embossing powder. I wanted to keep the leaf die as the primary focal point, but still add a bit of interest on the skinny panels.

The sentiment is from Sweet Stamp Shop. I kept this very clean and simple and kind of masculine, which is hard for a sympathy card.

Thanks for stopping by.
