Deepest Sympathy

I had a request from the flower shop I sell my cards at to make sympathy cards, it's something they get a lot of requests for.

I searched for a layout that is clean and simple, that would work well with a sympathy mood, and is easily replicatable. I found one, and do you think I bookmarked who made cards like this? No... Why? Because I'm stupid.. but if I copied YOU, please let me know..

Anyway. I used two brand-spankin' new stamps from Amuse to make the backgrounds. I experimented by using two white inks by Palette (Fresh Snow and New Canvas) because using pigment ink with both of the images made the ink spread a little, so I thought I would try the New Canvas. It wasn't as saturated, but it didn't pool as badly.. I will keep experimenting because I really like how these cards turned out.

This is the pigment ink (click for larger view)

and this is the hybrid ink (click for larger view)
And this card happened because I had a bunch of extra butterflies lying around as a result from playing with the Stampin' Up Sizzix die in my Cuttlebug.

Paper: Papertrey ink, Prism, Bazzill, Stampin' Up; Stamps: Technique Tuesday, AMuse; Ink: Palette (Fresh Snow, New Canvas), Momento (Tuxedo Black); Rik Rak (American Crafts), Jewels (AMuse and Kaiser), Butterfly Die Cut (Stampin' Up).
