Sending Sympathy


Welcome to the weekend.  Played along with the a challenge at Splitcoast yesterday; Field of Flowers. I really like to have some sympathy cards on hand and my stash needed to be refilled so here is a card I made using the watercolouring effect.  I used a set from Paper Smooches, inked with Distress inks then sprayed with water before stamping.  By adding the water, it gives a great  watercolour look to the stamped image.  The purple flowers remind me of the lilacs blooming in my garden right now.
I am also adding this to the challenge at Addicted to CAS; circles (I think it qualifies as the little flowers are circles).
Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look and have a great weekend.

Supplies:  stamp; Paper Smooches, Stampin Up/ Distress ink/ mini mister/ pop dots
