Metallic Ranunculus Sympathy Card

I can’t seem to put away the ranunculus stamps from the Hero Arts You’re So Lovely set.

This was totally inspired by the Vintage Ombre Ranunculus post on the Hero Arts Blog last week. I love the look of metallic pigment inks, but I can never get them to dry completely. My version is all embossing powder over VersaMark.

Supplies: Stamps – Hero Arts, Papertrey Ink, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Night of Navy, Stardream Copper, ink – VersaFine Onyx Black, VersaMark, embossing powders – Ranger Liquid Platinum, Verdigris,  Stampin’ Up! Classy Copper.


Silver Cross Sympathy Note Card

I spent part of last weekend trying to refill my card basket. This is one of the note sized cards I created.

We had a thunderstorm go through around dinner time last night…and a double rainbow in the aftermath.
