Embossed sympathy

Stamps by Verve, Cuttlebug embossing and dies, misc cs and ribbon.  The ink is grey and black - I just used a mask to remove most of the ink from the stamp to create a faint bg for the sentiment.  I have recently seen a number of cards with a sentiment stamped over the image, and I want to experiment with this look.
