He Leadeth Me Beside The Still Waters


I needed a sympathy cards for a sweet couple
who had just lost their son. I made this one with white cardstock and paper from the Pink Paislee Butterfly Garden 6x6 Pad.


My stamp set is by Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps ,
but I don't think it is available anymore. They have lots of new ones, though, that I've put on my wish list.


Since I don't own any markers or colored pencils,
I thought I would try my hand at a brush coloring technique using Tim Holtz Distress Inks, which I do have. Now this is FUN!  Am lovin' this! Well, now the problem is, I need more colors of Distress Ink. Does it ever end?
Have a Happy Day, guys!

So sorry for this sweet couple, Linda. What a lovely card you have made for them. The deer image and sentiment are just perfect. Fabulous coloring job you did with the Distress Inks. I have no clue how to do that.
