Black Lace Sympathy

By Taheerah | 15th May 2013 | 7 Comments

Hey everyone! Happy Wednesday!

Well, my mojo is dead right now. Dead dead dead. It’s very frustrating to work through, but I am trying! I’m hoping when this week is out of the way I’ll feel better and the mojo will return.

Anyway, so yes. Dead mojo, and all I could come up with is this sympathy card. I wonder if the two are linked:

What do you think? I don’t think there’s anything *wrong* with this card as such, just isn’t really what I want to create right now.

I started with a Rustic White card base and stamped the flowers from Lace Bouquet using Versafine Onyx Black ink. I really wanted to try a black lace on cream effect and think the result is quite striking.

I wanted to keep this card and its message quite simple, so I added the sentiment from Think Big Favourites #3 and an accompanying sentiment from Sending You. I heat embossed the companion sentiment with WOW! Clear Semi Dull embossing powder for a bit of definition, and stippled on some Vintage Cream ink to fade the flowers behind the words so they would stand out a little more. A few tiny rhinestones finished up this detail and I was all done!

Well, with any luck I’ll have something a little more inspiring to share with you tomorrow – I certainly hope so! In the meantime I would love it if you left some love before you went on your way! Thanks so much for stopping by!

  1. Oh how ironic you made a sympathy card when you felt your mojo was also dead. But, I love this one! Love the vertical sentiment, and how your secondary sentiment is in the design. Just perfect.

  2. Mojo can be a real pain, especially when it abandons it's user halfway through a task…kinda like Google Chrome!

    I for one would never have guessed your mojo was in peril looking at this classy, understated beauty. I love the sentiment nestled into the lace…and have always loved how black lace looks on a pale base. Pretty!
