With Sympathy

This card is for the monthly swap that Pam hosts on SCS.  Each month we make 10 cards and include a matching envelope.  They can be any theme for any month.  All of the swappers are wonderful and I have receive awesome cards each and every month.  I really like this Whipper Snapper Designs stamp-and I think it makes an elegant, yet simple, sympathy card.

I recently saw a list of Stampin' Up ink colors that can be used with Copic Markers or the SU Blendabilities and not bleed.  I used my Baked Brown Sugar ink to give the image a softer look than my usual Memento Tuxedo Black that is use when I color with markers.  I really like the look and will use some of the other compatible ink colors in the future!   

I hope Pam and the others swappers like my card this month!

Love this Barb, the brown ink is a fabulous touch - I often use Cocoa ink for a softer image, and like you, I love the effect.
