Because I Care (by Shirley)

Hello everyone, I hope you are doing well.

I have card today that was 'quick to make' using the gorgeous new sets Tranquility and Serenity.  I thought this would work for an occasion when you want to cheer someone up or even as a sympathy card.


The background behind the tree and bird was created with alcohol inks on glossy paper.    I stamped the tree and bird from Serenity and sentiment from Pretty Poppies with black Archival Ink.   The second background was created with Seedless Preserves Distress Ink using the Acrylic block technique.  I over stamped with the vine from Tranquility using Seedless Preserves DI.   

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day,
Shirley

  2. Lovely card for a quickie Shirley. Great background and lovely sentiment. I think the words on the Pretty Poppies plate are some of my most used, they are lovely aren't they? Elaine x

  6. Your black polka dot ribbon compliments the design beautifully especially with your white matting. I love the way your base background brings out the purple colour of the image panel yet has a slight bluish tinge to it too.

  7. I love the pink and blue tones on this card Shirley, they would certainly brighten anyone's day. The Vine makes the perfect all over background. The lovely silhouetted tree and bird stand out beautifully against that rich purply blue, as does the sweet black dotty ribbon, and the light colour separating each layer gives it further definition. Gorgeous!
