Sympathy Card with Ink-Blended Background

Sympathy Card with Lighthouse and Ink-blended background

Hello! Today I am sharing a sympathy card. I ink-blended the background with Cantaloupe, Lemonade, Sunshine, Banana, Tangerine, Midnight, and Blueberry inks. I stamped the lighthouse from the Lighthouse2Stamp set and colored it with my Copic markers. The stamped image doesn’t have stripes, but I added stripes to mine. The sentiment is from the Sorry4YourLoss set. To see a tutorial of how I made this card, watch my YouTube video here.

  1. Inks – Cantaloupe, Lemonade, Sunshine, Banana, Midnight, and Blueberry
  2. Cardstock: Cranberry, Midnight
  3. Bristol Smooth Cardstock
  4. Lighthouse2Stamp
  5. Lighthouse2Stamp Dies
