Feminin Sympathy Card

Recently at work a co-workers wife had passed away, a lot of my co-workers had texted me the news and asked if I could make a card. I went with my new favorite quick technique of the masking tape/painters tape. I did make a Masculine Sympathy card using this technique but changed it to be more feminin.

I used my Favorite inks by Stampin Up, (by the way if you need a demonstartor to purchase from I just found a fabulose local lady)

For my images I stamped them in my Favorite Versa Fine Black Onyx ink.

I am entering this in the Fabulous Word Art Wednesday anything thing goes challenge #115.
I am also entering this in the Simon Says Stamp  anything goes challenge as well.

Ink colors in from left to right Pritty in Pink, Strawberry Slush, and Primrose Petals.

Good old fashion painters tape from my local Walmart.
One of my go to Sympathy Stamp Sets from Hero Arts, With Depest Sympathy that I purchased at Micheal's with a 40 % coupon.
Lightest color on top and you see that smudge on the top left I will be covering up that boo boo with my stamped image.
Enamel Dot Stickers from Micheal's(Recollections brand in their Valentines section).
I always purchase these Square Mounting Tabs at my local Dollar Store whenever I see them, I usually purchase at least 5 sets every time I see them, you get 64 squares in a pack.
This is my stamped mat and that's how many squares I put on.
