With Sympathy

Hi everyone!  Last week seemed to be the week of sympathy cards around here.  I made three, and my husband came home from work yesterday asking me to make another.   This is my favorite so far.

With Sympathy


It’s been ages since I watercolored on watercolor paper (or at all).  I had forgotten that patience is required.  Stamp the image.  Wait.  Lay down the first color. Wait.  Add more color…  I prefer the instant gratification of using Copics, but I like the result here.  I really should try it more often. 

I used Anna’s Blossoms and Butterflies and Blooming Expressions by Whipper Snapper.  Such pretty flowers in this set. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Enjoy the rest of your weekend!  🙂
