Church Sympathy

For me sympathy cards are quite hard to make. But with Church Sympathy - Stamp Set 604 it is really easy.

Image is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and it's colored with alcohol base makers. Flower is stamped two more times, fussy cut and popped up with foam tape. Frame around the image is colored with VersaMarker and heat embossed with Blackened Bronze embossing powder.

For the matting layer I used white cardstock. I inked the edges of it with Versamark ink and heat embossed with Blackened Bronze embossing powder. Pattern papers are distressed with scissors and inked with Tea Dye Distress Ink. Blue pattern paper is covered with Rock Candy Distress Crackle Paint.

I sprinkled some Blackened Bronze embossing powder and melted it with heat tool underneath the paper. This EP is perfect for this effect.

Brown polka dot paper is stamped with Crackle Background - Stamp Set 609 and Versamark ink. It is covered with Skylight EP and heat embossed. Of course I added some Blackened Bronze embossing powder sprinkles on top of it too.

Full directions how I made this card are in SNS Gallery here.

Embossing Powders: Skylight (EP212), Blackened Bronze (EP454)
