Beautiful Heart With Sympathy

I learned in a Christmas card that a friend of mine lost her mother recently so I decided to make her a sympathy card. I pulled out my Altenew Beautiful Heart stamp set and paired it with a sentiment from Simon Says Stamp Bouquet of Thanks. This is a layering stamp and I decided to use a gray ink for the outline. I took the mini ink cubes used on the stamp and created diagonal stripes for the background.

At the end it looked a little flat, so I took my Pentel Metallic Silver Pen and went over all the lines on the stamp and sentiment. It gave it a nice subtle sheen. It turned out pretty.

I am a very blessed wife, mother, daughter, sister, aunt, and friend. I firmly believe in the quote by Dieter F. Uchtdorf which states "The desire to create is one of the deepest yearnings of the human heart." Every day I try to create something that lifts the heart for myself and others.
