I made this card for a friend and business associate who lost her mother this week.
I stamped the flower on black cs with Unicorn, and added a little definition with a white Prismacolor pencil. I painted the flower center with Shimmer Spritz and the lightly sprayed the entire focal.
The sentiment is computer generated and heat embossed - I hadn't ever tried that before but on this heavy metallic paper the printer ink stayed wet a little longer than normal, so it worked great. Speaking of paper, the card base and sentiment panel are cut from some absolutely gorgeous paper - its a gorgeous metallic platinum color. I wish you could see it!
Both the focal and sentiment are attached with foam tape for dimension.
As always, thanks for looking!

Oh what a beautiful sympathy card! The painted flower is gorgeous. I never thought to emboss the printer ink. I know the black stays wet a very long time when used on papers that aren't very absorbent - terrific idea!
