Sadly I had the need to create another sympathy card. The woman worked for a florist at one time so I thought watercoloring some of Tim's stamps from 'Flower Garden' CS215 would be perfect.
Jet Black Archival Ink was used to stamp the coneflower image on to watercolor paper. I created a mask onto a scrap piece of paper so I could add additional flowers. Distress markers (Hickory Smoke, Aged Mahogany, Victorian Veltet, Spun Sugar, Shabby Shutters, Peeled Paint, Forest Moss, Frayed Burlap, Vintage Photo, Ground Espresso) were used to color the flowers...LOVE this look! I always use at least 3 shades of the color for plenty of dimension.
The floral layer is on a layer of green Bazzill cardstock which is on top of another green Bazzill cardstock base card. I found an old Sizzix die to create my tag out of watercolor paper. A bit of pink silk ribbon finishes the tag. With a flick of the wrist and Hickory Smoke Distress Ink and water I created spatters for a softer look. A bit of shading (more Hickory Smoke d. i. and water) finishes the card.
