Sympathy Flowers in Sunset

Sympathy card done the Michelle Zindorf way........sort of
The rubber stamps of flowers and the background grass that I used is a Stamping Up set called Inspire by Nature. I used Stamping Up markers to color the flowers-Yoyo Yellow and Chocolate Chip. After stamping the flowers on Stamping Up whisper white cardstock, I re-colored over the images with a VersaMarker and embossed them with clear fine detail embossing powder.
For the sunset..I tried once again to brayer the background. No matter what I do...I cannot get the brayering method that Michelle uses down correctly so I end up sponging all my colors on the cardstock for the sunset. Before I used the darker colors, I temporarily glued down a circle mask for the sun. After all the sunset colors were done, I stamped the grass with brown and wiped it off the flowers. I did not have cardstock to match the ink colors in the sunset so I used brayer on white cardstock in the two colors that I needed to mat the sunset on.
Sunset Ink colors: Stamping Up Apricot Appeal,Pumpkinie,Real Red, Barely Banana, Really Rust & Black
For the green background I had some left over green paper that I used up. The sentiment came from the set Sympathy Sentiments. I stamped another set of flowers and cut one out for an additional flower.

Beautiful Netta!!! Is this the card you all were discussing Doc's response to? I couldn't see the card you showed in the group. This is really a lovely card.

This is a lovely card! I discovered it in doing a search for sympathy cards on splitcoast, and just had to come over to your blog for a "visit!"

Blessings!
