Sadly last week I lost a dear friend who left behind a mammoth legacy. She died at the age of 84, survived by her 13 (she had 15 in all) children, 36 grandchildren and 4 great grand children. Her funeral was put together by herself prior to her passing (which was sooooooo her) and it was magical.
Over the years I had made her many things....mainly in tones of her favourite colour....blue. So it was only fitting that the card I gave to her family reflected that too. Here is her card.....
I struggled with the way I wanted to lay this out. I wanted the blue to pop and initially I had no matting....just the rose sitting on dimensionals....but is was very flat. The rose was coloured on Vanilla CS with blender pens....something I know I need a lot more practice at.
In the end, the matts won out...and I am thankful they did. I also found I had a lot more "space' to work with on a square as opposed to a rectangular card. The rose and sentiment were still popped up on dimensionals.
The sympathy sentiment is a clear KaiserCraft one. I struggle to get even ink coverage on these esp with SU ink. If anyone has any suggestions.....I would be grateful.
Thanks for popping by.
