BECAUSE I CARE..
This past weekend, Splitcoast Stampers hosted the Spring Virtual Stamp Night (VSN). There were challenges posted hourly during the hours of play and you only get 45 minutes to complete your card. That is why many of my cards are of the clean and simple variety. Not to mention is pushes me to do something different.
This card is for a challenge to make a Sympathy card, and it features one of my favorite SU! sets. I use a technique I call shadow stamping. Not sure if that is the correct term. Basically you ink up your image, stamp it, lift one side slightly while one part of the image remains in contact with the paper, move the stamp slightly to the left or right, then repeat. Each time the image is slightly lighter and all of the stems connect at the bottom. I added some bling to the center of the darkest flowers and used my nestabilities. Then added a heart charm with some silver twine.
Thanks for looking...
