Shadow Stamping Sympathy

Welcome!  I am still trying to catch up here on my blog, by sharing all the cards I've made this summer.  This sympathy card features shadow stamping.


Brought out my trusty Thoughts & Prayers set by Stampin' Up!, and used two green inks to achieve the shadows:  Pear Pizzazz and Old Olive.  I dotted each blossom with Liquid Pearls.  An errant black smudge was covered up with some 3-D pearls.  ;-)


Entering this in two 'anything goes' challenges:  Simon Says Stamp and Word Art Wednesday.

Thank you for letting me share this with you!  I hope you have a wonderful day.

I just got new transition lenses (like a trifocal with no lines) and when I first looked at your card, I thought my new glasses were making me see double. Then, I realized it's stamped that way. HOW COOL IS THAT!? I've never seen that technique before, Colleen, and it's awesome. I am SO bad about not learning new techniques, but I love seeing them used. I also love that green on white combo. Thanks SO MUCH for sharing this amazing card in our challenge this week.
I hope you'll stop by and join us again soon.
Blessings to you,

Stella said...

I LMBO by your confession aboiut using pearls; I dfo that myself too:) Glad to read I am not the only one. I never tried shadow stamping but looking at your card i added this technique to my to-do-and-try list. It's gorgeous!

How are you? I read bits and pieces on Facebook; hope you are on the mend and getting used to use only one crutch?
Take careXX

This is absolutely beautiful! Love the green. Funny how I've been thinking about shadow stamping lately. I have so few silhouette stamps anymore.
