I've used this sweet rubberstamp image called Sharing in Your Sorrow designed by Elisabeth Bell for the Whiff of Joy's Sympathy Collection. You can find this lovely but sad young lady and her frowning little puppy companion at the Whiff of Joy online store here.
This pic shows a closer view of my Copic-filled image.
I've layered Bazzill cardstock with We R Memory Keepers Anthologie patterns to form my easel card. A Spellbinders Ironwork Accents die cut provides my rounded corner element. Faux stitching borders my layers. A brown wrinkled seam binding bow lies below a Close To My Heart Say It In Style set sentiment. Memory Box white pearl sticker strips are lined at each end of my striped border. A Junkitz Mom Buttonz white fabric button tied with silver cord accents one corner. Zva Creative rhinestone swirls add bits of bling around my image. Handmade flowers, lightly painted with Star Dust Stickles, are made using Punch Bunch daisy and birch leaf punches and hold Creative Impressions white pearls in their centers. McGill pine branch punches add nice filler to my flower clusters.
Here's a view of the front of my completed card showing my use of Whiff of Joy's Sharing in Your Sorrow, as designed by Elisabeth Bell, using the sketch by Janneke . . .
The base of my card shows a silver metal praying angel, QuicKutz arrows die cuts, and a feel better sentiment from a Hero Arts Huge Hugs set. Another white fabric button tied with silver cord adorns a corner with a small cluster of handmade flowers. A bit of Zva Creative rhinestone swirls adorns the opposite corner.
This pic shows how my easel card looks when completely open and ready for display . . .
