Brushos and Pixie Powder Sympathy Card

Hello My Crafty Blog Friends

Good morning. It is so wet and damp this morning. I have a meal cooking in the slow cooker. It seems like the perfect day to stay in and craft. I hope you stay safe and warm.

I was looking through my files of photos and I came across this card that I haven't shared yet. It is a Sympathy card they are never easy to make. My husband wanted a card for someone at his work who had just lost his father-in-law.


I made two sheets of the background card with a stamp and a mixture of wet Brushos and Pixie Powders on my craft mat. Once I had finished stamping I spritzed the card to make the colours blend and mellow. I made one sheet a bit lighter so that the main stamp would show up a bit better. 


This is a Woodware stamp called Going to Seed. I stamped it with Perfect Medium and heat embossed it with a black powder. 


I do like creating these background but I do get very messy. I do have lots of inky kitchen roll that I should be making into backgrounds. 

I am not going to be around much for the next few days. We are visiting Disneyland Paris for a few days with our daughter and son-in-law. I hope the weather is kind to us. We are all going to take waterproofs I think we will need them. 

Enjoy the rest of the week. 


Happy Crafting

Hugs Jackie
