Distress Oxides: Heartfelt Sympathy

I have had to make a number of sympathy cards recently, and I always find them hard to make. It's easier to have some made in advance, but I never seem to. This card is another blended panel that I had already made and had in my stash.

The original panel was made by blending a lot of colors of Distress Oxides. Once the colors were blended, I stamped this lovely Magenta Clover Silhouette image in Faded Jeans Distress Oxide. I think this stamp is really one of my very favorite stamps; it was designed by Magenta DT member Ellie Knoll. I really think that no matter what you do with it, it will look beautiful.

After stamping, I spritzed the entire panel with water and then speckled it with a little of the darker ink that I had put on my craft mat with some added water. I think that the water drops give it a more ethereal look.

I cut the panel out with the Die-namics MFT 846 Inside/Outside Stitched Ovals. I adhered the oval to the top center of a white textured cardstock that was cut using the Die-namics MFT 463 Blueprints 13 stitched rectangle die that cuts the panel to 5.25" x 4"

I stamped the Impression Obsession sentiment onto the bottom of the white panel with Versafine Onyx Black ink, and the panel was matted with Stardream Blue Steele cardstock. I adhered the panel to a base card of 110# Neenah Solar White cardstock.

I love how this card turned out, and I almost always feel that way when I use this Clover Silhouette stamp! If you have not yet looked at my Distress Oxide Overview post, you can see it here.
