Sorry for your loss

I needed a masculine sympathy card this week, so I pulled out several of my Tim Holtz supplies and whipped this one up. Don't forget.... all Tim Holtz products are 10% off this month at Stamp Simply.

The background is kraft card stock embossed with the 3D Lumber folder and then inked over with Vintage Photo and Walnut Stain distress ink. I spritzed a bit of water onto it to get the color to run, and then heat set it.

The leaves are die cut from watercolor paper and dabbed with the distress oxides colors listed below. I added some black paint splatters to grunge them up a bit.

Supplies from Stamp Simply:  

Other Supplies:

  • Twine 
  • Black Acrylic Paint
  • These colors of Distress Ink (Ranger)
    • Walnut Stain, Vintage Photo
  • These colors of Distress Oxide (Ranger) 
    • Festive Berries, Fossilized Amber, Rusty Hinge, Peeled Paint, Walnut Stain

This is a wonderful project for a masculine sympathy card! I love those leaves and the sentiment is just right. Thanks for joining us at Four Seasons!

Wow, what a great job on your woodgrain background, looks so dimensional and true to life. Great tag on your card and the leaves really pop against the black background. Would love you to join us at Double Trouble, collaborating with Use Your Stuff, with your Fall Card and meeting the requirement of our Thing 1 Trouble Maker... hope to see you there.
