Hero Arts Week Day 2

I had so much fun creating projects for the blog hop that I decided to share all week creations that I had made for the blog hop that didn't get posted on the day of the hop.
    Today I decided to share my second card is a sympathy card using the With Sympathy CL476 set and the  Delicate Leaf Clusters CL477. Both of these sets were on my list as soon as I saw them.

    1. Stamp the background by inking the Classic Fabric Design using a combination of Rangers Distress Ink Scattered Straw and Tea Dye.
    2. Sponge the edges using the same dye inks. 
    3. Stamp the leaf cluster  using Peeled Paint. 
    4. Stamp flowers using the same combination as the background. 
    5. Trace oval around stamped images leaving the leaves around the edge. 
    6. Cut out the oval and leaves. 
    7. Stamp sentiment from With Sympathy CL476 clear set using Versafine Vintage Sepia.
    8. Stamp the bird using green dye ink. 
    9. Sponge bird using the distress inks.  
    10. Emboss panel and sponge using distress inks.
