Sponged Scene Sympathy Card

I made this scene sympathy card for a friend who just lost his dad. The tree is stamped on Shimmery White CS, then the scene created by sponging over and over using torn scratch paper.
I attached the panel to Brushed Gold CS and then to the card base which is a pretty metallic blue!

I added a few highlights with the White Gel Pen.
Thoughts & Prayers Stamp set.
Ink Pads: Baja, Marina, Espresso, Suede, Wisteria, River Rock, Pear, Wasabi, Old Olive, Pretty in Pink, Mustard, Stazon Black and River Rock marker.

Golden Autumn

I haven't used my Brushed Gold CS is awhile so I matched it up with River Rock CS and Well Worn DSP! They actually go very nicely together! The Greeting is stamped on Brushed Gold CS with Suede ink that was cut out using the Scallop Oval Frame die and I used just the oval cut to fit the card. I didn't want to use a circle and cover up too much of the background so the cut off oval was perfect and different! Vanilla Seam Binding ruffle attached behind the oval to match the bow. The leaves from Gently Falling stamp set were stamped on Brushed Gold CS with Cajun Craze and Soft Suede inks and cut out. Basic Pearls and Swirls cut out from the Swirls Scribbles die add details!
Also used Hand-Penned Holidays set for the greeting and Vinatge Brads.

All The Fall Colors

I just had to watercolor these leaves from the Gently Falling stamp set in the Holiday Mini Catalog! I stamped the open image leaves on Confetti Cream CS using Stazon Black ink and then used the ink from the inside of the Classic stamp pad lids to water color with. I went back over the edges with markers to match.
The script saying- Hand-Penned Holidays is also from the Holiday Mini...I would love to see some smaller size sayings with this same script writing!
