With Sympathy

I had a whole stash of Sympathy cards made and I used up most of it last month! So it is time to start making some more. This one is for a friend whose father who passed away last week from Parkinsons Disease. I wanted to make another watercolour card as I think it is most suited for a sympathy card. It is quick and easy to make. I inked up the stamp with various distress colours, stamp onto watercolour paper and spritzed with water. I love the bleeding of the colours onto the paper! I'm linking up my second watercolour card to Virginia's View Watercolour challenge using the current Fusion Card sketch.


Ingredients
Neenah and watercolour card, Hero Arts Floral Blossoms and Sentiment, Tim Holtz distress inks Victorian Velvet, Seedless Preserve and Evergreen Bough, Ranger Archival Jet  Black and Lil Inkers Stitched Square die.
