December Heartfelt Creations Alumni Design Team Blog Hop

Good morning everyone and welcome to this month's Heartfelt Creations Alumni Design Team Blog Hop.  As most of you are aware, we lost Penny O'Dell this month and this blog hop is being dedicated to her memory.  We miss you Penny!


We all need sympathy cards at some point and I believe that a simple design with a mostly white background is classic.  I used watercolor paper for the base card and all the layers as well as the flowers are made with it.  It is a beautiful off white color and not too stark; just a warm look to provide a great background for my flowers. I stamped and cut out the flowers and leaves.  Once my flowers were shaped I sprayed some color spray right in the centers of the flowers and when the flowers dried I glued white seed beads in the center.   When I was doing the leaves I used a water brush and just ran the brush along the side of the ink pad and then onto the leaf.

There is a $25 gift certificate from Heartfelt Creations to be given away to one lucky person so you must visit as many of the participating designers as you can and leave a comment on each blog because we never know from which blog the winner will be chosen.

If you arrived here from:Amy Doria's blog you are right on track and your next stop will be: Vicki Dutcher's  blog.

You have until Midnight,  January 1st. to leave a comment on as many of our blogs as you can.  The winner of the $25 gift certificate will be announced on Saturday,  January 2nd.  Good luck to everyone!
