Simply Soft Sympathy

Morning all.

Once again, I had the need for a couple of sympathy cards at work. One of them was for a very much beloved patient who was 101. She was a delightful lady and always dressed in purple, so it was not hard as to the palate for her card. i got my inspiration from this card on SCS. I also wanted to try out a new technique to me called "Marker Layering". There is a great tutorial for it here. These are the two cards I did.....




You can see how the colour is just a little magical......


Sadly, I had a wee oops on the blue card and started with the medium blue....doh!!! Here are the 2 together.....


Thanks for popping by. Hopefully there will be a bit of a break between sympathy cards next time.

Stuff used:
CS: (SU) Basic Black, Wisteria Wonder, Bashful Blue, Whisper White
Ink: (SU) Stazon, SWM's in Almost Amethyst, Wisteria Wonder, Elegant Eggplant, Pear Pizzaz, Old Olive, Bashful Blue, Pool Party, Marina Mist
Stamps: (SU) Simply Soft, Teeny Tiny Sentiments
Other bits: SU 2 tags die, Cuttlebug Swiss Dots Embossing folder, Dimensionals

Very pretty. Wow 101 is a good innings...can't help thinking how kind of wonderful, yet sad your job is.

I'm pleased to say that I finally turned the corner on my buglies today and I'm starting to feel pretty good again.
