I have been making sympathy cards and thank you cards this past week. I'll post the rest later this week. I designed this one for a special person and wanted it to be light and funny. You have to be careful when sending whimsical or funny cards as sympathy cards. I believe it is important to know the recipient very well so as not to appear disrespectful. I know for sure this card will be just what "the doctor ordered' for my recipient.
The image I used is called Fancy Fish. It was drawn by my good buddy Kim Hecker over at Oak Pond Creations. I feel pretty safe in saying that when she drew it, she did not think it was going to be used in a Sympathy Card. But what better than a big sloppy fishy kiss to make someone smile. OK, I know I am a little strange. LOL
The fish was colored with Copics and hi-lighted with Prisma pencils. The black spiky mat was cut with a Cricut "Fancy Frames " cartridge and then Stickled. The coral is an Impression Obsession and then Stickled. The sentiment was computer generated. I got carried away with the Stickles. The more I Stickled, the more it screamed, "Stickle Me Please". The little seashell and paper is from my stash.
I haven't played over at Sassy Cheryls' SMT Blog in awhile, so I will enter this there. In fact I am going to mosey on over there right now to see what is going on with all her friends.
