Just Add Ink has an inspiration photo this week.
I love the colours, especially the rich blues and purples with the touches of metal from the brushes.
I paired it with the sketch at CAS Colours and Sketches.
Here's where it ended up...
After sponging and blending the masked vertical column, I sprinkled it with water to get some spots of lifted colour. This not only gave some interest but it helped to suggest rain or tears, which goes with the sympathy sentiment.
After stamping the images in ink, I added in some copper embossed leaves at the bottom and some copper splatters at the top, adding to the rain effect.
And on the inside...
