With Deespest Sympathy

Hello everyone!! Hope you all had a good work week and looking forward to the weekend. I'm here to share a card that I made recently.

I had bought the Gladioli digi from Power Poppy some time back, but didn't get a chance to color it till now. I decided to try no-line coloring on it and a few other digis, and printed out all those digis after formatting them in Powerpoint. I colored the image with my copics - I used R29, R35 and R22 for the flowers and G99, YG67, YG63 and YG03 for the leaves - and added shading with Crayola pencils. Kind of ok for my first trial. Here's a close-up of my coloring.

I recently bought a Texture Boutique. Since I have a Cricut already, I thought of buying an embossing machine. Plus Michaels had it on clearance ;) I've been eyeing it on the shelves for quite some time trying to decide whether I need it or not. Then one day, I went to Michaels, straight to the aisle and bought it. I'm glad I did. I had this embossing folder called Antique Elegance which was given by a friend sometime back. I used it to emboss a piece of coral card stock. The embossed pattern is very beautiful. 

The sentiment is from Inspired By Stamping Big Sympathy stamp set. I stamped it on a piece of white card stock and cut it into a fishtail banner. I sponged it with DI Antique Linen. I also sponged the edges of the panel with the colored image with DI Antique Linen. I added both panels with foam tape on the embossed panel. I inked the edges of a card base with DI Antique Linen and adhered the coral panel on it. I colored 2 white pearls with copic marker R22 and added it on the sentiment panel.

Hope you like my card. Thanks for stopping by. Have a great weekend.
