With Sympathy

Today's card uses a Clearly Besotted stamp and die cut. I die cut the shape first before stamping it because the die is closed and I wouldn't be able to see if it was cutting out correctly whereas I can see where I'm stamping with the clear stamps.The flowers and the stems/leaves are separate stamps but I did the same technique for each. I inked the stamp with a light color and stamped it and then went in with a darker color, rubbing some of it away first and stamping on top of the already stamped image. I didn't have two good shades of yellow so I went with an orange color. The ink pads I used are by Stampin Up, Close to my Heart, and Clearsnap.

I adhered the flower die cut onto a Spellbinders die cut.The sentiment is stamped with Versa Mark ink and heat embossed with Ranger's platinum embossing powder. The patterned papers are by Studio G.  




Thanks for looking.
