Daisy Jar Sympathy

Before I went on vacation, I placed an order with Cornish Heritage Farms and this Daisy Jar was one of the stamps I ordered. I think CHF is my new favorite stamp company! Stamps are great quality, beautiful images and great customer service!! Not to mention a frequent shopper club :)

Since I keep getting caught without sympathy cards, I thought I should bulk up my stash in this category. This is one that will be added and hopefully not used very soon. I embossed the image with black ep, then used my water brush and inkpads to color the image. The flowers are Groovy Guava and the water is Bordering Blue. The jar is Going Grey and the flower centers are Summer Sun. I used Always Artichoke for the stems.

The image is layered on a piece of green and then Groovy Guava card stock. The dp is Basic Grey but I'm not sure which pattern - it was in my stash and I was very glad to find it because it had the perfect color combination. The tag is one of the Cuttlebug dies and edged with GG ink. Sentiment is from Little Paper Shop, stamped in Always Artichoke. Ribbon also from my stash.

Well, sadly it's already time for me to get ready for work. Although I'm going in late today, I have already done laundry and gone to the grocery store. Now my time is up and it's back to reality. Let's hope nothing catastrophic happened while I was away...

Thanks for looking!

This is excellent! The blue of the water is so clear looking. I love it! And, you're right. The dp goes perfectly with it.
