Almost 3 weeks of quarantine

Hi crafty friends!

How are you doing? It's been almost 3 weeks of quarantine here in Belgium and I can't be more thankful for my craft room and card making to keep me busy.
Today I created this sympathy card.

Altenew Layered Lily

I wanted the lilies to be as soft as possible so the first layer I actually didn't stamp. The second layer is stamped with Altenew Blush ink and the third one with Altenew Rouge ink. The last layer is stamped several times with the same Rouge ink and this makes the middle of the flowers more darker.

For the leaves I used Firefly, Grass Field and Shadow Creek Altenew ink. I used the coordinating dies to cut the flowers and the leaves.

For the gray background I used gray cardstock and stamped the Leaves and Berries background from SSS with Versamark and heat set this with White satin pearl embossing powder.

The sentiment is from Clearly Besotted and is stamped with Versafine Onyx Black ink.

Finally I adhered the card front to the card base and I adhered the flowers with foam tape for some dimension.
