With Sympathy

It seems like there's always a need for a Sympathy card so I pulled out my new A Muse Studio stamps and ink and check out what transpired.

I think the harlequin background matched with the oval and scalloped oval nesties - all in a tone on tone look  - really made an elegant and beautiful card. I love the lichen and fern inks together - so lovely - don't you agree?!!
The inks stamp so well. They are a pigment ink but they're not as spongy or thick as other pigment inks so you don't get really goopy rubber. KWIM? ;) And, they handle sentiments as well as solid images. That's an ink pad that I like!!!

Finally, the best thing about this card is that it took about 5 minutes to make but I think it looks like it took much longer. I'm excited to see how many other five minute cards I can get made today. :)

Have a wonderfully creative day!

Hi Seleise *Ü* How are ya?? Thanks for popping by today! Your card is so pretty-I ♥ that celery green color! And yes, it looks like it took much longer than 5 min. to make... those are nice to do esp. when you need to whip out quite a few! *Ü* Hope you're having a great day!

Love the card. The pad sounds like an improvement over other pigment pads.
