Floral Sympathy

I've made a card to share with you today, using the pretty new Simon Says Stamp Spring Flowers Background, from the Let's Connect release, to make a sympathy card...
The last card I posted, I had colored the background of the background stamp, and used all the same colors with this stamp, except that I embossed the entire background stamp after coloring, with gold embossing powder instead of black. I made this card by stamping the image in my MISTI with Simon Smoke ink.  I took it out of the MISTI, and colored with my Prismacolor markers.  What I love about this stamp, is that it had modern, sort of geometric flowers, and I opted to simply color different parts of each flower with different shades of yellow...nothing fancy, but I thought it looked cool.  I colored the background gray and the leaves with a green marker. I then put the colored image back into my MISTI, rubbed with my static bag, and stamped again, this time with versamark, and then gold embossed! I dotted some of the petals and some of the leaves with Tonic Jewel drops and added a layered CZ Design sentiment die.  I die cut a piece of vellum for the sentiment's background.  Here's a close up...
...then from the other the golden shine!  It's hard to capture metallics  in pictures, but thought the above and below showed it pretty well...
I am really enjoying much fun!!
Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa


  1. Really soft and beautiful. Love the color selection

  2. Pura eleganza!
    xoxoxo Lalla... but always Eulalia

  3. It's a really lovely and elegant card..but I think it's more appropriate for birthdays/thank you's, etc.

  4. The gold embossing adds the perfect touch. I think the card works well for just about anything. I would have loved getting one when my mom died.

  5. Beautiful, as always, Lisa. The gold embossed card is fantastic. Anyone who lost a loved one would have their spirits lifted in receiving the card. Thanks for your ongoing inspiration.


I so appreciate your comments...thank you, so much, for taking the time to write:)!! Hugs!! Lisa
