PSC44 Sympathy Challenge

Perfect Sentiments CREATE A CARD WITH A SENTIMENT FOR SYMPATHY & The twist is to make it Clean & Simple Challenge.  

I have to admit-I made 4 cards before I was happy with this one!  CAS is not my style.  I really couldn't believe how difficult it was for me!  I felt like my card was naked!  One of my team members said "it's not naked-it's just not wearing many clothes"!!  

I had to get some inspiration so I went to a friend's blog to get some. She does a FANTASTIC job doing CAS.  Check her out:  Lynn @ The Mango Boys & Me

We have a repeat sponsor this week:

I hope you'll go to our challenge website to see all the rules concerning the challenge as well as to see all the design teams creations.  You can also see them individually on my right sidebar.

Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you have a blessed week!

The initial C I purchased from Joanne's. The "shadowbox" had a couple of layers in the bottom. Gesso, white acrylic, dry brushed black, titan buff. I used a small round brush to paint in the lines.   The new Premium Acrylic paint leaves behind a satin finish.  Really nice. The background -which is a recycled 16x20 canvas coated in white gesso, was painted with Americana Deep Burgundy. Once dry, I dry brushed some Titan Buff (Premium acrylic) randomly. I painted the C in black premium acrylic.  Glued it to the bottom right corner of the shadowbox with tacky glue. I used a whie Posca pen to write my favorite verse around the edges of the shadowbox.  I used Tacky glue and hot glue to adhere the flowers.  I like to use both. Hot glue helps it sti…
