Unfortunately last week I had to make another sympathy card 😔
Decided to steer clear of Waterfront stamps before I only think death when I use it … and went for an ombre watercolour wash and Tim Holtz wild flowers stamp instead.
I layered yellows and oranges Stampin Up inks using my large flat brush and water. Then I flicked some spots of the darker orange and let it dry.
Once dry I added some subtle pattern through the writing stencil from Donna Downey and the stamped the flower using the stamp platform to ensure I got the impression well. I then flicked some watered down Sparks paint to add some shimmer.
Once that was dry I stamped the flower again, this time using versamark and heat embossed it. This is where the stamp platform came into it’s own as the stamp wad still perfectly placed. I did the same heat embossing with the sentiment.
I then took the stencil brush and made sure I had darkened the edges to frame it.
I am so so so happy with how this card finished up… again I wish it was for a happier reason… but hopefully it will bring some happiness to my friends mum in her sorrow.
