Inspired Sympathy Cards

Happy Saturday, everyone!  This week's Inspiration Challenge over at Splitcoast is to find inspiration from a ceramics Pinterest board.  Unfortunately, I have several sympathy cards to make so I chose two different ceramic pieces for two different cards.

For my first card, I chose this photo since the flowing petals reminded me of a calla lily.  The set I used for this card is 'Loving Memories' by Our Daily Bread designs.  The image was stamped onto a panel cut with the ODBD Custom Double Stitched Rectangles Dies set, colored with markers and water-coloring, then masked the image and sponged a blush color around the image.

This beautiful vase inspired me to create the second sympathy card, on which I used the 'Dragonfly' single, along with a sentiment from 'Loving Memories'.  The ivory panel was cut out with the ODBD Custom Pierced Rectangles Dies, stamped the dragonfly in Stazon Jet black, colored with markers, then clear-coated with a Glaze pen for a resist effect to keep the wings light.  The panel was sponged with green and gray to match the inspiration piece, then piercing was added instead of embellishments so that it would be easy to mail.
