One seed can start a garden, one candle can light a room, one step can begin a journey, one conversation can start a friendship, one smile from a handmade card can lift one's SPIRIT!

MIM # 152 Second card with layering dye and pigment inks

I had a few requests for sympathy cards,
here is another one for this Make It Monday Challenge.
I stamped the background basics:  text style with white pigment ink
To hurry along the process, I dried it with the heat gun.
I stamped the flower from PTI Flower Garden with pure poppy and the leaves
with ripe avocado. 
the Sentiment is from Boutique Borders: Sympathy
I think I might try this one more time using a different background.
Thanks for taking a look,
have a great short week!
Heart hugs,
