Dynamic Duos #58 - Stampin' Up! Love & Sympathy

Dear Stampin' friends

Cajun Craze!!! Are you kidding me? :)

Here's the monochromatic combo on offer from Dynamic Duos this week. Don't be frightened and procrastinate like I did with this challenge.....jump in and play along! :)

I wanted to do a bit of a colour wash with my Tangerine Tango and Cajun Craze ink and experimented a bit on Naturals Ivory cardstock. I liked the result and I stamped over it with the flower image from Stampin' Up! Love & Sympathy. The Crumb Cake looked lovely but it didn't stand out so I went over the stems and the underside of the petals with my Crumb Cake marker and it brought out the image a little bit more.

I layered it on some Cajun Craze cardstock & the two colours of DSP. It's not my 'normal' style of sympathy card but it does look nice in real life.
