Our intrepid leader at OSAAT Challenge Choccy had suffered the bereavement of her Grandad and the DT girls put together a collection of cards and messages of support. Ingrid collated it all together and send it to Choccy. It really is a fab team to work with and we are like a big family.
I made a card using this lovely image Remembrance from Delicious Doodles. Poppies are the perfect image for this, the most saddest of occasions to make a card. It always breaks my heart to have to make a card under these circumstances.
First of all, I must apologise for the awful lighting on the photo. It is horribly dark at the best of times in The UK at this time of year and the photo is not helped by the fact the black paper has a shimmer to it.
The image is coloured with Promarkers & Flexmarkers. I decoupaged the flower heads and the plaque on the cross. I added some glossy accents to the centres. The image and mat are cut using a Nestabilities labels 25 die.
The base card is black cardstock and I have added a layer or mottled red paper form HOTP. The shipper paper has been punched with the lace heart punch and finally the With Love sentiment is from my stash.
My deepest condolences to you my friend on the loss of someone you loved so very much.
