The Friends of Speedy TV are making sympathy cards for today's challenge. It's never fun to make them when you need them. I like to have some done in advance, so I think this makes a good challenge. With my sympathy card, I went for the idea of wheat fields waving in the wind and how peaceful can seem. I tried to make everything else understated. I went with neutral tones and did a little bit of sponging. My embossing folder really gave me a crisp impression, so I went back over it with my bone folder to try and tone it down too. I rounded a couple corners to soften up all the straight edges and popped up the image and sentiment panel.
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you have a chance to play along with us this week at Speedy TV.
