Sympathy Card

Welcome to my blog x

Today I had a play with my Martha Stewart clay & moulds. Got to wait 24hrs for them to air dry, And then I can add them to a card.

Today I have a sympathy card to share with you. I know it's not a great occasion, but unfortunately we all need one at some point in our life!

I made this for my husbands work colleague a few months back now.

The glitter does not show up perfectly here!
Looks very effective in real life.


What I Used:

A large wooden stamp: (cannot see who it's by, but I purchased it @ Alexander Palace) I stamped the image several times because I wanted to decoupage it.

Card: I purchased this ages ago in the £1 shop. It came in a box with different colour waves, sequins, wire, etc. Everything you needed to make a card. 

Fine Glitter: Purchased @ Alexander Palace £1 a scoop. 

Quickie Glue Pen: A must for this image.
