Just Us Girls #449 - Trend Week

Hi all!  It's Trend Week at Just Us Girls and Bobby chose watercolor background.  Certainly a trend, wouldn't you agree?
 
The brother of my husband's friend passed, so I needed a simple sympathy card.  I used my Gansai Tambi watercolors and distress watercolor paper to create the blue background.  Then I die cut the panel with a stitched rectangle die.  I stamped the flower and sentiment with Versafine Claire ink.  I had to stamp it several times using the MISTI to get the really solid image.  I matted it with a die cut blue panel.  It's also on fun foam for some dimension.

Thanks for stopping by!

What a stunning sympathy card - it's just the perfect make for such a difficult card - I always struggle with sympathy cards! Hope you don't mind my CASing this the next time I need one! It's really so sweet!

Water color washes are great for sympathy cards - this is lovely with the silhouette stamping and stitched framings Lisa!

So sorry you needed this card, Lisa, but it's a wonderful sympathy card with its soft blue watercoloring and wildflower silhouette.

Your sympathy card is beautiful...soft and delicate. I know it will touch the heart of the person receiving it; it's certainly touched mine...
