Papertrey Sympathy

Inspired by Zindorf's amazing use of color with a brayer. I started out with a sheet of white. I brayered apricot ink over the sheet, then punched a circle with my SU! punch. I put the circle punch on the sheet, then brayered summer sun, pumpkin pie and really rust on the bottom, each color, stopping slightly below the previous color. I stamped the branch (Out on a limb, Papertrey ink) in basic brown and the outline of the leaf in artichoke. I used my aquapainter to fill in the leaf with olive and celery. The sentiment (Out on a limb, Papertrey Ink) is stamped in ruby red and punched it with the large oval SU punch. I layered the sentiment on a piece of ruby red, punched with the SU punch. Main image layered on Ruby red, then on white. Simple card which will hopefully bring some comfort to our friends from church.
