WOYWW #216 - Finishing Up

Just finishing up 4 cards for SIL -- she wanted a set of the sympathy card using the My Daily Bread Amazing Grace chalkboard stamp.   I spent last Saturday with a patient DH searching for the same paper, and/or stamps that would produce the same effect. 

I did not have any of the correctly colored flowers, so I added some Stamping Up Aqua ink refiller drops (7) to a mini-mister bottle and sprayed some white and beige paper flowers.  They seemed too blue, so I added Tsukineko Sheer Shimmer Spritz in gold.  Had to wait for those to dry. I also tried buttons, but that didn't look right.

I just need some leaf sprays in the bottom left corner of the last 2 cards, and I finished them while I was taking pix this morning!  After downloading, I see that every desk picture I took is way too blurry, but no time to re-take, gotta scoot to work! 

Have a lovely day!

  1. They came out great! Sounds like we both got very lucky in the hubby dept. as mine gets dragged around on some interesting hunts too!Color matching can be a drag sometimes, but I know she will love them. Winnie#82

  4. ot so blurry that we can't tell, so pics are just fone! I too love that chalkboard effect and the stamp. You did work hard to repeat the cards, good for you. i agree about buttons, somehow on a sympathy card they would seem wrong...frivoulous, which is ridiculous when you consider it's just a button! still, you've nailed it, the flowers are perfect...

  5. You did a lovely job on these...I think that stamp is marvelous too!
