An Oops and a Sympathy Card

27 08 2017

To be clear, the sympathy card has nothing to do with the “oops” in the title.

We found out about the passing of a woman we used to attend church with. They moved, but people were able to find a current address for them.

This card is for her husband and the rest of the family, but mostly for him. They’d been married for quite some time and I can’t imagine the hole her passing has left in his life.

The oops came in when I tried to use the sketch pen in my Cameo to write on the already colored image. Apparently, going over an inked area is not what the pens are made to do – luckily, there are other really great things they do really well. It’s just this specific situation I had trouble with. In case you find yourself in a similar situation, it’s not you. It’s not the pen. It’s the ink already on the paper. Probably. That’s my assumption. It’s the second time I’ve run across this specific set up 😉

The sketch pen got enough on the paper that I was able to use a zig pen and fill in the rest. Even though it didn’t work the way I initially imagined, I think I would still do it the same way because I couldn’t do this by hand without the help of my Cameo.

Oh, and to do this, I used my pixscan mat – yay pixscan!

The background paper is also from Silhouette. I used the print and cut feature for this. It’s so much easier than going through all the actual paper to find something that would work. Don’t get me wrong. There’s still a huge place for real paper 😉

Thanks for stopping by
