Contrasts!

There are so many possibilities with this week's CASology prompt, CONTRAST.  I needed to make some more sympathy cards for my stash, and clean & simple cards are perfect.


Supplies: Unity sentiment; Stampendous medallion; Distress inks in Faded Jeans & Tumbled Glass; Versamark & clear detail EP

I used light & dark blue inks for colour contrast, and embossed the sentiment for textural contrast. I inked the edges of the panel as well, for contrast from the white card base. I really love this sympathy sentiment because it acknowledges the truth that grieving happens on its own timetable.

This is a fabulous sympathy card, and the blues give it such a soft feeling. I just love that sentiment, too. Thank you so much for playing along at CASology this week.

That is one of my favourite sympathy sentiments. I must pull mine out and make more use of it. Love the two blues and that gorgeous medallion. Thanks for playing along with CASology this week!
