Sympathy Silhouette for Friday Mashup

This week at The Friday Mashup Tara is our hostess and she wants us to create an ombre look, and also use an embellishment cluster. I've never tried the whole ombre thing so this was my first time, be gentle with me :)

My husband grew up in the Bay Area of CA and has a close knit circle of friends from his junior high and high school days. They all live in different parts of the US now but Facebook keeps them connected and hubby found out that 3 brothers in his circle lost their dad to a heart attack the other day. Hubby has always told me how nice this dad was and hearing about his passing really got to hubby. He asked me if I could make a sympathy card to send to the mom and of course I said yes.

For the ombre look I sponged 3 colors...Tangerine Tango, Pumpkin Pie and Calypso Coral. After I got the shades I wanted with the sponging I then took an image from the Serene Silhouettes set and stamped that over the colors with Memento Tuxedo Black. I didn't want to overdo the embellishments since it's a sympathy card so I added 3 sequins.

For some reason I ordered 2 packs of Calypso Coral when I didn't even need more of that color so I decided to use that as my card base. I then took a panel of Whisper White and embossed that with the Fancy Fan TIEF. The image panel was then popped up with dimensionals on the WW panel. The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes and I stamped that in black ink on WW and made a small banner.

Make sure to head over to The Friday Mashup blog to see what the rest of the DT did and then play along with us!
