I am showcasing for you today one of the new releases this month called With Deepest Sympathy. I used this set along with the Amazing Grace Hymn individual stamp as the background image behind the focus image. I wanted to show that while the three releases focus on sympathy sets, the images can be used for other types of cards. Here, I chose not to put a sentiment on the outside and just let the beautiful image speak for itself.

I am using enchanted evening and bermuda bay cardstock. I added a piece of the thoroughly modern dp and patterns designer paper in the bermuda bay that I heavily sponged along with the other ivory colored cardstock. I used Ranger inks in antique linen, vintage photo, walnut stain, and tea dyed. I used the ornare piercing pad to pierced the borders and used a permanent marker for my faux stitching.

I colored the main image using copic markers. I finished with a heart charm and some sheer ribbon.

Please continue on the blog hopping trail to Silke, Grace, and Sandee's blogs!!! Happy blog hopping!!!


As always, thanks so much for stopping by and your comments are greatly appreciated!!!
