With Sympathy

Congrats to Ali, the Featured Stamper on Splitcoast (FS270). ! I loved her gallery but I have to tell you, her wonderful sea of white is scary to me, lol. I love looking at CAS cards and ones w/ a lot of white space. but I have a real hard time doing that on my cards. When I see a lot of white space on my own cards, I start feeling shaky and nervous.

Anyway, I chose Ali’s Butterfly. I kept the white space, color and layout but I added an embossing folder. ribbon and used different images.
Julie Warner - justwritedesigns - https://thewritestuff.justwritedesigns.comI used images from 3 different Our Daily Bread designs sets. In order to get the right color, I used the 2 inks…first inking w/ the aquamarine then tapping the blue lagoon on top before stamping. I caved a little on the background. All the white space was a little too much for me so I added some texture. The embossing folder was used on the background, but I only embossed up to the border at the bottom.

It still felt a little unfinished, so I added the bow and ribbon and then the butterfly. The finished card is 4.25 x 5.50.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Happy Easter, everyone!
