JAI #306: Just Add Sympathy


Here we are again  - it's Friday, so time for another Just Add Ink challenge.

This week Jan has challenged us to Just Add Sympathy. I don't know about you, but I find these some of the most difficult to make, especially at the times they are needed. This was a good chance to get one made when I wasn't too sad and not feeling creative.

I went for a subdued colour scheme of Early Espresso, Sahara Sand, Rose Red, Garden Green and Very Vanilla. I quite like that mix of colours.

The Hardwood background was stamped with Early Espresso ink on Sahara Sand cardstock. I love the old, weathered look it creates for the background.

I used my Thoughts And Prayers stamp set for the inside. It's an oldie, but a goodie, for sympathy cards.

As usual, the rest of the Design Team have come up with some fabulous creations for your inspiration. You can see them over at the Just Add Ink blog. I hope you can play along with us this week.

Bye for now,



  1. I love the natural feel to this Tina that you achieved with the woodgrain and toned down colours. Love that you finished off the butterfly with a pearl - a lovely subtle touch! xxx

  2. This is such a pretty Sympathy card Tina! I love the warm, earthy colours you have used and the wreath of leaves to highlight your sentiment and elegant butterfly. Gorgeous! Xx

  3. This is such a pretty card Tina, and I love the natural feel to it.

  4. Beautiful card Tina! Love the gorgeous butterfly and the leaves around the base of the circles. Gorgeous colours and a gorgeous layout. Love it! Rochelle xo
