Sympathy Cards, Thinking Of You Cards

Always Thinking Of You

Hi there, I hope your day is going well!

It’s a new month which means there’s a brand new Greenhouse Society stamp set from Technique Tuesday: Royal Jasmine!  If you love florals, don’t forget that you can subscribe to the Greenhouse Society for a great monthly discount.

When I saw this pretty bloom and the accompanying sentiments, I decided to make a sympathy card.  I started by using Versafine Clair Nocturne ink and Hero Arts clear embossing powder to heat emboss the blooming branch onto Fabriano Artistico Extra White watercolor paper.  Then i used a round 2 brush and a teeny bit of Brusho Crystal Colour powders to watercolor.  I used Grey for the petals, Yellow for the stamen, and Leaf Green for the leaves and stem.

When the watercolor was dry, I used the coordinating die to cut it out and then backed it with foam tape.  I adhered it to a panel of Neenah Solar White which I’d cut down 3.25″ x 4.5″ and onto which I’d stamped the sentiment, in the same black ink.

Then I adhered that panel to an A2-sized piece of Neenah Solar White that I’d stamped with the Hero Arts Wallpaper background stamp.  I used Versafine Clair Morning Mist ink which is a pretty gray.

To finish, I adhered the card front to an A2-sized card base.

Thanks so much for visiting!
