A Card for Comfort

Click on any image to enlarge.




This is my latest creation. It was for a dear friend who lost his wife of 50 years. Since Polka Doodles challenge was for a card for a male this past week, I thought I would enter it there also. However, I had my days mixed up, and didn't meet their deadline. Oh well, there will continue to be challenges; giving comfort to our friends is the most important thing. The stamp was from Heartfelt Creations, that I colored with Prismacolor pencils and then used Gamsol to shade and blend the colors. The frames were cut from Storybook and then topped with three brads. The sentiment was a stamp that was cut out, glued to another paper and cut out again before being glued down.

You did a beautiful job with your prismacolors. I have those and I have no idea how to do the shading. I love the shadow look you did. Great card!
