Watercolor Sympathy Card

Unfortunately, I needed a sympathy card this week. My sister-in-law's mom passed away. You may notice this looks similar to another card I posted recently. I love the technique for this card. I colored directly onto the stamp with watercolor crayons, spritzed it with water and stamped onto the watercolor paper. Then I used the aquapainter and crayons to color in the grass and fill in a few bare spots on the tree trunks. The new wide grosgrain was just perfect for this card. (Thanks for the ribbon, Rhonda!) I layered it between the 2 layers of cardstock to add some dimension. And of course I had to use the ticket corner punch all over the place!

Supplies (all SU): Stamps: Lovely as a Tree, Sincere Salutations; Paper: watercolor paper, Really Rust; Ink: Chocolate Chip; Accessories: watercolor wonder crayons, ticket corner punch, aquapainter, Chocolate Chip wide grosgrain ribbon

Remember, you have to post a comment by Thursday at 8PM to be in the drawing for the blog candy. Thanks to all who have commented or even just stopped by!
