Serene Silhouettes Sympathy

One of Roy's work colleagues lost his mum this week so I was asked to make a card suitable for Roy's department to all sign. I really like how this turned out, it's really a very simple card which I hope will be suitable.
 The oval embossing folder was highlighted with Crumb Cake Ink and a sponge, the solid image was first inked up with Craft White, but only towards the top, then with Old Olive only at the bottom and the 'in between' bits were inked up with a marker which actually worked quite well giving some shading to the intensity of the green. You can see the colour variations in the close-up. Once the white Craft ink had dried, it was a little light so I went back in with a white gel pen.

This is so serene and lovely, Emma! Thanks for the tip on inking the silhouette top and bottom and using the marker in between. Much quicker!
