Love and Sympathy, CMCC57

Hi, everyone! It's the first Wednesday of the month and that means it is time for a monochromatic challenge from Colour Me! The feautured color today is Night of Navy, a color I seem to be using a lot of lately. You can combine it with any neutrals, and I chose Sahara Sand and Whisper White.


I'm sad to say that I have depleted my supply of sympathy cards and needed to make a few more. I think a simple monochromatic color scheme is elegant and just perfect for a such an occasion. To make my focal panel, I used a clear block and inked it up for the background, and stamped the floral images on top.


Hmm, my background looks a little fuzzy in this shot... Now who could that be? Perhaps my little helper, Oliver! He sticks his little pink nose into everything! 


I love the Love & Sympathy stamp set because of its beautiful sentiments, including one for the inside of the card. I repeated the floral image, this time stamped in Sahara Sand.


Stamp Sets: Love and Sympathy, Blooming with Kindness
Card Stock: Whisper White, Sahara Sand, Night of Navy
Designer Series Paper: Regals Stack
Ink Pads: Sahara Sand, Night of Navy
Accessories: Night of Navy Seam Binding

Thanks for visiting me today, and please pay a visit to the rest of the Design Team at Colour Me! We'd be so pleased if you'd play along, too!
