Using the Mojo Monday Sketch #224 and the H2H Color Challenge, I made my second sympathy card for the week. This was is for my mother's maid of honor (nearly 54 years ago) whose husband passed away earlier this month.
Everything on this card is CTMH. Paper is Wonderland, stamps are from Rock the Block, the flowers and circles were cut out using the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge, and even the flower center was made using CTMH supplies. Well, except for the Copic marker used to color the circle charm.
Here's what happened. I punched out a bit of the Wonderland paper. It wasn't quite dark enough so I smeared a little Twilight ink on it. That made it too dark, so I watered it down to get a softer effect. Then I put the circle charm over wet paper. It didn't stick (hmmm...imagine that). So I peeled it off and had sticky residue. Using my sander, I got the rest of the wet paper off, but that made my circle charm too cloudy to effectively mount another piece of paper under it. What to do, what to do? I know...pull out a Copic (BG72), color the cloudy circle charm, dab it with Liquid Glass, and cover it all with glitter. Voila!
I now vote for no more sympathy cards.
Until next time,
