Unity Stamps My Condolences

How beautiful is this image??!!  Several stamp companies have recently offered us beautiful rose images and I was torn between this one by Unity Stamps and another by a different company, but this one, My Condolences stole my heart!  It’s the perfect size to mostly fill a card front and the addition of the simple phrase is all that’s needed!

I stamped the roses directly onto a folded A2 card base of Stampin Up’s Crumb Cake using Crumb Cake ink.  As you can see, I stamped it out several times to fill in the background.

Then I began coloring with my Prismacolor pencils!  I used many shades of reds, pinks, orange, coral, greens, grays and white, plus a little white gel pen for accents.  I’m not very good at the gel pen accents but I like how they add a little “sumthin sumthin”!

After adding lovely gray shading in some of the nooks and crannies, I just heat-embossed the sentiment with white powder.  I really, really love this card and was a bit surprised at how beautifully it turned out!

I made this crazily colored card while stamping with Jackson (aka Bubby!) one evening!

 I showed him heat-embossing and he had fun watching the powder melt on his dino images, and then I showed him how to do paint spatters!!  He’s five but he’s been stamping with Nina since he was a wee tyke!  Just look at that concentration!  Spatters are the BEST!!

A happy stamper, right here!!

While Bubby was spattering, I actually cut my multi-colored roses out of that gorgeous spattery background and mounted them to a background I’d made a few weeks ago but never used.  It makes for a very colorful card, indeed!  The sentiments are from Pink Fresh Studio’s Let’s Flamingle set!

This is the very first card I made with My Condolences; I heat-embossed it in white onto a panel of Canson watercolor card stock then colored it with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers and a water brush to move and blend the ink.  When it was (almost) dry, I added spatters which got a little blurry.  OH well!

I trimmed the panel down and attached it to a base card of Stampin Up’s Crumb Cake card stock then stamped an envelope for it.  This image is so intricate looking, yet so simple to color and create something really special!  Thank you for your visit!
