WSC64: Sympathy’s Song

Probably my favorite Stampin’ Up! set ever, Natural Beauty, was my go to set this morning. I think it will be in my collection forever.ย  I’ll be sending this to some friends at church today. I’ll hope it brings a sense of comfort.

Beate’s sketch went together quickly today. That was probably out of necessity as it’s another crazy Friday. I’m anxious to check out Sharon, Mary Jo, Laurie, Jenn, Charmaine, Cambria and Beate to see what they’ve thrown together today. ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m going to leave you with the details. The label was created by inking the actual label die with Pearlescent Brilliance ink before cutting and embossing. This gives you a ‘frame’ so to speak where the dry embossed edge is. The bird was colored with Copics and AirBrushed with Copic RV10. I have to run, so if you have any questions, please leave me a comment and I’ll be sure to answer you.

  • Stamps: Aged Music Scrapblock (Cornish Heritage Farms) & Natural Beauty (Stampin’ Up!)
  • Cardstock: Simply Smooth Vanilla (Prism), Close to Cocoa & Chocolate Chip (Stampin’ Up!) and Sultry (Basic Grey)
  • Ink: Espresso Adirondack (Ranger)
  • Accs: Label One & Large Rectangle Scalloped Nestabilities (Spellbinders), Copic Markers (E31, E33, RV10), Copic Airbrush System, ribbon (Beaux Regards)
