So Long George

An elderly gentlemen in our church passed away on Saturday so I made a sympathy card for the family.  George had been in our church for quite some time.  He had such a great sense of humor and loved to fish.  I made this card with Stampscapes images and tried Sheree's sky technique.  I thought it would be a fitting card to remember the life of this wonderful Christian man.



The sentiment is from Our Daily Bread Designs Scripture Collection #4. I used two stamps from sheet #1 (river scene and side trees) which, by the way, were originally sold by A Stamp in the Hand (I have some of these in my stash of stamps).  Kevin designed stamps for that company while he was in College before he started his Stampscapes company. I also used the standard mountain for most of us, Rocky Peaks 188F.






Card Recipe:
Images: Sheet#1 and Rocky Peaks 188F, Gulls 302A
Paper: Stampin Up new In Color, Black Glossy and White Glossy
Markers/Inks: Adirondack Aqua, Meadow, Stream, Lettuce and Lake Mist, Momento Black and London Fog, a little white gel pen for highlights on the water
Embellishments: Spellbinders Fancy Tags, SU Pearls colored with Copics 100



I will enter this card into the following challenges:
Rest in peace, George!
