With Heartfelt Sympathy

This week's Stamp Simply challenge is to create a design using Kraft and black papers. I decided to make up a quick sympathy design using Our Daily Bread designs new release, "With Heartfelt Sympathy." This set has marvelous cattails, a dragonfly, and multiple sentiments and Bible verses.

I stamped the image and sentiment with Versafine Black Onyx ink onto PaperTrey Ink's Kraft, then embossing it with Stampin' Up Fine Detail Black EP. A couple of Copic markers adds a bit of color...coloring on Kraft with Copics is great! I will definitely have to try it again in the future!

Quick layers of PaperTrey Ink True Black & Kraft, as well as retired SU dp make up this design. Some dimensional tape between layers gives a lift, and a black Basic Grey button with MayArts twine finishes things off.
