I took a break from my series of 8 to make a sympathy card. My friend Patsy has passed away but will not be forgotten. She was a talented artist & did every craft imaginable. This is a close up before it was made into the card. I wish that the colors on this showed up better in the pictures, because you can't tell that there was a light blue background washed in. This is the stamp I used, by auntieamy.com - They are foam mounted so they cling to acrylic blocks. I used mary Le Plume markers in Brownish grey & Laurel green to ink the stamp, then stamp onto water color paper. I also use the inks from the markers to watercolor in the image. My finished card is 5 1/2 X 5 1/2 and I used papers from K&Co for matting.
My passion for crafting goes back more than 20 yrs. I love it all..embroidery, watercolors, stamping, making mini books, and making paper flowers. I also love all things vintage, and love to use them in my crafting. I used to scrapbook when my children were small... but now my son is almost 14, and my daughter is almost 24. I currently teach classes at the Scrapbook N More in New Braunfels, and Stamp Antonio in San Antonio, TX.
