Unfortunately, I had to make a sympathy card for hubby's granddaughter. We're so grateful she made the trip when she did even though the baby was so young as I know it's helping her work through the grieving process. I want my sympathy cards to be simple but beautiful--not at all showy. As I was looking for inspiration, I came across these cards done by Elizabeth Allen that I had in my Flickr Favorites. My card is nothing like these, but they did inspire me to use a small watercolored background with a dark image on top going beyond the colored area. I began by brushing plain water onto the watercolor paper. I tapped Distress Inks bundled sage, pumice stone & weathered wood onto an acrylic block & used my water brush to add them to the paper. The floral image is from Penny Black's Illumination set & is stamped in Versafine Smokey Gray. I added a thin green mat & mounted it to a card made from PTI Vintage Cream cardstock. The sentiment is from PTI Through The Trees. On the inside I used this Verses stamp of Flavia's quote. I bought this stamp as soon as I saw it knowing it's one I would use. I loved Flavia years ago & even had checks with her quotes. This will be another entry in The Wonder of Watercolor Challenge in the Moxie Fab World. Hope you're having a lovely day.
