Friends With Flair Friday


This week I decided to make a sympathy card since one of the seniors at my church passed away earlier this week. It was very sudden. I decided to keep the card very simple with muted colors. Since chalks are a really soft coloring medium, that's what I used on this card. I briefly thought about heat embossing them, which would also look really pretty, but I really wanted a subdued, muted feeling.

I stamped with VersaMark, then used my dauber to sponge on the chalk. I dry embossed only the image to draw more attention to it. Both the image and sentiment were popped up on dimensionals.
