Sympathy in Navy

Today I was inspired by the Moxie Fab World, Tuesday Trigger: I'm Craving Navy!
I was completely inspired by the photo.(photo credit)  I love the clean fresh look... white accented by a good dose of navy.

I confess, navy is not a "go to" color of mine, but it is of my daughter and while working with it, a few other color/navy combinations came to mind... so don't be surprised if I go on a navy kick for a few days.

My project is a sympathy card.  I have always found they are best made ahead, since there is often too much emotion to make them when needed.

To ink this stamp(Red Poppies from Rubbernecker -- like the irony?) I inked the stems of this stamp with Tim Holtz Distress Ink: Stormy Sky and the blossom with Faded Jeans.  I then took a paint brush inked with Chipped Sapphire and accented some of the details of the stamp.  After a quick "huff" I stamped the image on white cardstock.  The sentiment "In Loving Memory" was stamped with black.

The rest of the card uses background stamps: Abstract Roses embossed in white & Flourish Shadow stamped with Faded Jeans (and edges sponged with Stormy Sky).

Stamps: "Red Poppies", "Abstract Roses", "Flourish Shadow" and "In Loving Memory": all from Rubbernecker Stamp Company:
Inks: Tim Holtz Distress Ink: Stormy Sky, Faded Jeans, and Chipped Sapphire; Memento Tuxedo Black; Versamark;
Cardstock: Super Smooth white and navy from Bazzill;
Accessories: white embossing powder; foam tape, ink blending tool;

I can't wait to see how this Tuesday Trigger inspires others!
