Todays card is one I really didn't want to have to make, but unfortunately death is a big part of life and we cannot avoid it no matter what we do, but oh, do I wish we could. A dear friend of mine recently lost her brother suddenly and most unexpectedly, he was only in his thirties and had a lifetime ahead of him. I was so unsure what to do for this card, so in the end I thought it best to keep it very simple to mark my respect.
Basically I cut out a Spellbinders Labels 14 and used the 'waste' piece as a mask to sponge through.
I used a mix of Latte VersaMagic ink and Walnut stain Distress ink for this.
I stamped the flowers and the sentiment using black Archival ink, adding a slim ribbon and pleated bow with 8mm half pearls to finish off. Well that's it, simple but suitable I think, what do you think?
My heart goes out to the family; how do you come to terms with something so sudden and so totally unexpected. It must be so difficult for them at this time and for some time to come. What an awful shock to have to come to terms with.
I do hope you are all well and enjoying this glorious sunshine.
Take care. Biggest Hugs Linda xx
