Tulips Vase Sympathy

This is another of Deborah Boyet's fabulous designs. Pop to Blackberry Lane Designs here for details of how to buy it . I needed to make a fast Sympathy card so I went for (my version of) clean and simple....dont' know if it would pass muster in a challenge, will have to think about it. 

Promarkers used. Pear and Moss Green. Lemon, Canary and Mustard. 

A Close up of the vase, I 'washed' over it with denim and pastel blue promarkers, coloured the details with orange tiara Sakura pens. Did the borders of the patterns in Blue tiara and covered the whole vase with clear glaze Sakura. 

My Receipe....
Colourants - Promarkers and Sakura Tiara & Glaze
Die Cut - Nestie
DP - Papermania Perisimmon Collection 
Sticker Sentiment - Anita's Outline Stickers

Perfect sympathy card Linda! They are so hard to do, this has the dignity of the occasion as well as elegance too. I think it is CAS, but very pretty.Love that ribbon matches your paper!

Linda, you did a beautiful job with the tulips and vase. I love the color scheme you used, and your coloring is awesome. I really like the dotted technique you used on the table. I tried it once, and it's not that easy to do. I'm glad to see your colors, because I'm planning on doing my vase in blue and the tulips pink. Have a great day. Hugs, dj

The vase looks quite real, doesn't it? I think it makes a very nice sympathy card. They're the hardest for me to do since I lean toward the "happy" cards but Ive been trying to make a few to keep on hand cos they're even harder to do in the time constraints of an emergency. Nice cheerful colors!
