Sympathy Butterfly

Hello Art Neko fans, Kia here with you today to share this sympathy card.

I think we all need to have a few sympathy cards in our stash, which is what inspired this card.  I love using butterflies in general, but also think they are perfect for sympathy cards.

For the butterflies I wanted the background to have some movement, so I did my background using a foam brush and a sweeping motion across the paper using alcohol inks on glossy paper.  I used dark blues, turquoise and a lighter blue along with a hint of pinks, which show up better in real life. I then stamped the butterfly from the Butterflies and Dragonflies Plate A199 and the Sympathy sentiment on acetate and heat embossed with silver embossing powder. The detail in the butterfly shows beautifully done in the silver. I attached the acetate with vellum tape to my alcohol background. For the frame I used the negative left from die cutting another frame, which I think frames the piece nicely.

To finish I added a few sequins in the silver and blue and as I was gluing on acetate I used glossy accents.

Thank you for joining us here at Art Neko today. I will see you next time.


A Sympathy Couer de Rose


I love this rose set, isn’t it gorgeous?  I couldn’t resist coloring it up when I got this beautiful image from Art Neko. The stamp is called Couer de Rose,  it even sounds fancy, right? I colored the Rose portion with a a Black dye based marker some white cardstock and let it dry.  I colored with Copic markers V20 and V25 and then took my Eggplant dye based marker and created some shading with some dots. I used my Copic Markers YG67 and YG63 for the stems.

I stamped the With Sympathy with Plum Ink. Once I was finished cutting the patterned paper and matting with plum ad turquoise cardstock, I added some Stardust Stickles to the top portion. To finish the card off, I added some purple feathers and a Prima flower.
