Hero Arts Sympathy

Two weeks ago I found myself in my LSS and out from the shelves called a Hero Arts background stamp.  Somehow........it fell into my basket........so I guess it meant it was looking for a new home!   I put it to use right away because sadly, a neighbor lost her dad suddenly and I wanted to send over a card.  I know I'll be using this stamp A LOT!


I embossed the stamp with clear powder and then used my Distress Inks and daubers to color it in.  Afterwards, I put Perfect Pearls powder on my craft sheet and spritz it with water (Thank You Jennifer McGuire!).  Then I brushed that mixture over the flowers.  You can see that beautiful sheen!

I finished off the card with a PTI sentiment and some pearls. 

Prior to finishing this card, I noticed I left my camera on, so the battery was dead. Thankfully I could use my cell phone, but it's less than a quality picture! Oh well!!!  Hope you liked it anyway :)


Thanks for your visit!

This is gorgeous!! I hate that it had to be used for a sad occasion so quickly, but I know that this was appreciated.

You know I have the same thing that happens to me every time I go to a craft store, things just jump into my cart or basket!

Wow, Maria is this ever pretty! I really like all the detail of your flowers. So soft and serene. That is a great tip about the Perfect Pearls. Once I figure out how to watercolor correctly, I will have to try it out. Lol! Your card is absolutely gorgeous!
