Monochromatic Sympathy Card + Gold Stamping

 Hello and welcome.  Today,  I am sharing a monochromatic sympathy card with gold metallic stamping.  The colors are blue on blue with a hint of shine from the gold stamping.

Sentiment:  With sympathy.

Condolences are some of the most difficult greetings to make and send.  But, making them subtle yet pretty helps.

Helpful Tips:

To create this monochromatic sympathy card, stamp the flowers and the sentiment onto light blue cardstock using gold metallic ink.  To set the metallic stamping, spray a light mist of workable fixative like Krylon over the stamped panel and do this outside.  (The spray has a strong chemical smell.)  Once set, add blue color to the petals.  Then, die-cut or trim the flower panel and a scalloped frame layer.  Next, add white paint splatters over the stamped panel.  Finally, layer it all over the card base, to finish.

This is another look.
