When I saw the new Ornate Church and Lamp Post stamps I thought they'd make a beautiful sympathy card.
I started off by stamping the lamp posts in black Archival and heat embossing them with clear powder to give them the look of wrought iron. The church is just stamped in black Archival.
I then masked off everything I didn't want ink on (the church has a white mask on it) and started to add the colour.
I used Frayed Burlap Distress Ink for the scene for a couple of reasons. 1) I thought it would give a tranquil look to it and 2) There was no danger of ending up with a green glow as I probably would have done if I'd put yellow chalk on a blue sky.
Once I was happy with the glow I covered them with Glossy Accents to give the look of glass. I also used it on the church's stained glass window. The church has been coloured in with Spectrum Noir pencils.
