FS607 - Sympathy


Congratulations to this week's Splitcoaststampers' Featured Stamper, Angelica Turner. I chose this card as my inspiration:


I focused on Angelica's:
-square card
-circle focal image
-strip across the card
-centre sentiment
-thin black mats

I changed:
-technique
-occasion
-fewer layers

I used a really fun technique with ColourBursts that I learned from Jenny C last week. It's quite simple and it gives unique, artistic results without completely losing control (this is key for me! lol!)

I stamped the wreath stamp with clean water onto watercolourcardstock. Then I sprinkled Lime Green colourburst powder over it and just waited for it to dry. The powder only starts to spread where there's water, so I ended up with a wreath shape of gorgeous blue/green/yellow colour. To add definition, I stamped the wreath over top, and embossed it with Platinum Sparkle embossing powder from Wow!

Here's a quick video:

Lovely card Ardyth. My sympathy cards often are simple botanicals. I find them so peaceful.
