With Sympathy

Unfortunately....I needed to make a sympathy card for my friend Beth...her mom passed away.
I am a HUGE fan of Tami Hartley and I have been wanting to CASE and try a technique by Tami Hartley for some time can check it out HERE.

Here is my card:

I have use the colour stories from two challenges....Color Throwdown #143 and Totally Hues Challenge #7. They are so pretty?!!!

Just wanted to show you all a close-up picture to show panel....I did alter Tami's technique a bit. After covering the stamped inked panel with UTEE, I spritzed it with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist.  While it was still wet I got out the heat gun and dried kinda melted into the UTEE...LOVE the look!

Stamps: Hero Arts CL476 With Sympathy and S5507 Envelope Pattern.
Cardstock: Neenah and PTI
Ink: Tim Holtz Distress Inks in worn lipstick, scattered straw, crushed olive, and spun sugar. Copic to colour ribbon and Versafine onyx black for sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by ladies!!
Have a wonderful weekend!
Hugs, TRace
