Pine Lake Sympathy

Here's another scene from Our Daily Bread designs' October release: With Deepest Sympathy. This great scene makes for multiple card possibilites (especially for those so hard to create for, men!)...birthdays, thinking of you, congratulations, and of course...with sympathy.

I wanted to try some more Copic on Kraft coloring. I chose very muted colors that just give a hint of color...the kraft paper adds such a rich feel! I began by stamping my image on SU Kraft paper with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. Multiple copics were used here...just be sure to try some on a bit of Kraft scrap as you go.

Basic Grey Archaic papers were used a long with the kraft to create the design, finished off with SU Corduroy brads, button, and May Art twine.

Try using your Copics on Kraft paper...you will love the outcome!

Please check out the Our Daily Bread designs' Blog! The Breadsticks Design Team post design tips, info, and fun weekly!

Thanks so much for stopping by, and have a great week!

REMINDER: Blog candy coming up this week...stay posted!

Beautiful design, colors and coloring, Deb! Very peaceful and, as you mentioned, perfect for sympathy or as a masculine card for most any occasion.
