SIP 94

It was with sadness this week that I made this sympathy card. 

I used the challenge at Stamp, Ink, Paper for inspiration: the bottom line of die cut, light blue and bird. Best Birds is a set I’ve not used nearly enough, although in the past I’ve used it for happier events.

The die cut bird and branch are layered to give them some height. The die cut flowers are not. The vellum circle is die cut using Layering Circles framelits. The bird's breast is a pale wash of Soft Sky.

Update: Delighted to be a Winning Pick at Stamp, Ink, Paper.

Card: Soft Sky, Vellum, watercolour paper, Sahara Sand to layer the die cuts.
Stamps: Best Birds, Better Together
Inks: Versamark, Sahara Sand, Soft Sky, Pear Pizzazz, Blushing Bride

Other: Copper embossing powder, Layering Circle Framelits, Birds and Blooms thinlits, pearls, aqua painter, Softly Falling embossing folder.
