Kristina's Colour Challenge #30.

Last night I sat down at the computer, after the children were in bed, to read the news and I read the story about 2 children that had died in one of our local suburbs here in Perth. It made me feel very sad for the family and feel very lucky that my children were all safely tucked up in their beds. Then I started to check out a few blogs and when I came to Kristina's blog and saw this colour challenge it immediately made me think of leaves blowing in the wind and a sympathy card. So this is what I came up with for the challenge....
The wind is drawn by hand and because I don't have a Sahara Sand marker I had to draw it with a blender pen and the inside lid of the ink pad! I added a bit of glitter to the wind to give it some shimmer (not sure if it is appropriate to put glitter on a sympathy card?? What do you think?). If you click on the picture you can see the glitter.
Anyway, thanks for looking.

Stamps: petal prints, warmest regards. Inks: sahara sand, old olive, certainly celery. Card stock: sahara sand, old olive, certainly celery, whisper white. Accessories: Dazzling Diamonds. Tools: stamp-a-majig.

It's gorgeous Danniel. And I don't think there is anything wrong with adding a little sparkle to a sympathy card at all.

This is beautiful Danneil. This colour combination is so peaceful and elegant. I too heard about those poor babies and felt so sad. Aren't we blessed?
