with sympathy...

I was honored to be asked to guest design for this challenge and thought of the circle of life.

Recently I did a technique by Jennifer McGuire called “background alcohol ink lifting” with Distress alcohol eggplant, denim and silver mixative inks.
The lifting was done with Hero Arts “Rings Bold Prints” stamp...

I trimmed down one of the extra pieces to fit over dark grey card stock and applied it to the white card stock base card.
On another piece of the grey card stock I stamped the sentiment from MFT Stamps “Birdie Brown Greetings Galore” set using Versamark ink and heat embossed it with white embossing powder, before foam taping it to the front of the card.

Please join in on the fun of creation at Addicted to CAS not just this challenge but all the wonderful challenges to come!
