Mega Succulent Sympathy Card

It is a sad occasion when we have to make sympathy cards.  I try and make it extra special so that the recipient can feel my love and prayers during their difficult time.

For this card I kept it simple and stamped the Altenew Mega Succulent and heat embossed it with Brutus Monroe Icicle embossing powder.  I decided to do ink blending with my fabulous Picket Fence Studios Life Changing Blender Brushes.  For the ink blending I used Gina K inks in Red Velvet, Plum Punch and Blue Denim.  I can't tell you enough how awesome these brushes are.  I actually get a little sad when I am done using them.

I used MFT Brush Stroke Expressions for the sentiment.  I thought I was recording that part of the video but the footage was not there.  So I will explain that.  Because the Mega Succulent is clear embossed, the image is slick.  Any ink on the clear embossing will smear or bead up.  By using Brutus Monroe Raven embossing powder it will seal in the ink.  

I used various jewels for embellishments and then for a final touch, I sprayed the card panel with Sheer Shimmer Mist
