His & Hers Day 3 - Sympathy Cards


Jen Rzasa demonstrated a fabulous technique in Day 3 of His & Hers Online Card Class, which I wanted to try.  Mine didn't work out like Jen's but they finished up not too bad.  This is my "His" card.

For my "Hers" card, I used the same colour scheme but with a more feminine stamp:




I've also based them loosely on this week's CAS(E) This Sketch:


ETA: I've had a couple of enquiries about the stamps used.  The scroll stamp on the male card is a Judikins Bolio, and the flower stamp on the female card is from Magenta.  With sympathy is from Clearly Besotted.

Here are a couple of photos of the mini-canvas/bookmark/card workshop I ran last week for the stamping club that I'm in, which went down pretty well with everyone:

Close-up of the canvases - I did a pink set as well.
