Simple Salutations Challenge #86 - Create a Sympathy Card

The Simple Salutations Challenge this week at Mark's Finest Papers and Stamps is to create a sympathy card.  I decided to create a brayered background for my card.  Hopefully, it provides a peaceful mind-set for whomever would receive it.  I used the Marsh Silhouettes stamp set for both image and sentiment.  I brayered distress inks onto a panel of ultra smooth cardstock before stamping the images using Memento Black ink.  I also used a circle mask before I brayered the sky to create a setting sun in the horizon.

We hope you'll play along with the Simple Salutations Challenge for a chance to win a stamp from Mark's Finest Papers!  You can find the challenge HERE.

  1. Vicki, this is beautiful. Your brayering is fantastic. Mine always seems splotchy. What a calming card.
