Scottish Thistle

Good morning to you all! 
Todays little card is made using a Just Inklined image.

Sympathy cards are never easy to do but when I thought about it,
this was the perfect image for my card.

Scottish Thistle, coloured lightly with flexmarkers to give
a wash effect & teamed with Tartan Design Paper
I cut the image out with a round nestie & inked the edges with a
liquid chalk inkpad then matted onto a piece of cardstock
the same colour as the base card.
I added a little tartan bow & a computer generated sentiment.
The font I used was Papyrus you can get it here for free

There you have it, a quick & simple sympathy card.
Due to the nature of this card, I have decided not to enter it in any challenges!


  1. Love the thistle Dawn and the tartan paper looks fabulous.
