Sympathy Card

Unfortunately I've had recent need of a Sympathy Card. I created something a little brighter this time - hopefully it still conveyed the solemnity of the occasion but also gave the recipient a ray of hope for the future...

So Sorry straight

I created two panels of colour (one in peach tones, one green) using Brushos and stamped on them (when dry) with Altenew's 'Adore You' stamp set.

So Sorry angled

Real Ruff :-)

Couldn't resist playing with an older Mama Elephant set today - the sweet little 'Playful Pups'.

First I created a stencilled background using The Paper Mill Splatter stencil (from Riot) and Distress Oxide Inks.

Once I'd Copic coloured the forlorn little pup sitting beside his full food bowl (something you would never see in our house)

there didn't seem to be any other sentiment that would match his mood - poor little love.

I hope you're not feeling at all forlorn on this fabulous day...although it is Monday so hmmmmm ha ha!

Thanks for dropping by and I'll see you again soon...
