With Sympathy

Good morning everyone, I hope you week is off to a great start. Aside from the glorious weather we continue to have here in Souther Cali, I had a very good friend lose her father last week. So I kept her in mind when I made this card.

I started with the floral image in Basic black and embossed it with clear powder. Then I just colored the middle of each lilly with Yoyo yellow and the leaves are with Old olive. The next step was to go over the entire image with Versa mark and covered it again with clear embossing powder.

The next process was easy. Its easier to cover the rest f the paper by sponging an ink of choice, to not disturb the image you started with. I picked Baja breeze to not take away from the lillies. Then I added the water ripples by using a white gel pen to identify what parts of the images are in water. I think it came out quite nice.... after several drafts, lol. I hope you like it. I'll be back soon, tooddles.
