Sympathy Card

Made this card for a colleague who sadly lost her mother this week.  Stamp is from Stampendous, paper is MME.

The stamp I've used here doesn't say York's Shambles area, but I think it looks just like it.  I love this stamp and it was a bargain 50% off a few months ago after I'd had my eye on it for ages.    Stamped with Tim Holtz Distress Ink.

Stamp is coloured with ProMarkers.  Here's a good tip - don't leave the lid off your blender pen especially when you have a new found love for it!  Card entered for Allsorts Challenge Blog - Recipe for Boys.

I've had this butterfly for years and eventually decided to use it.  (I may take it off and keep it again though!)   Thanks to Nikky Hall for a great ProMarker tutorial the other day on tv.  I think I may have nearly cracked using the blender pen.  Stamp is Lili of the Valley, coloured with ProMarkers (and blender).  Punched border is made with a Martha Stewart punch.  Sentiment is HOTP.
