Watercolor Sympathy



Hey, hey, hey....

I love visiting blogs and finding new challenges to participate in. I found this challenge ( The Card Concept) to be different and unique, in that part of the crafting experience is labeling the kind of creation I have made...clean and simple, shabby, geometric, etc.

Here is the actual inspiration photo:

I spy...lacey flowers and of course the color combo


I just love this new stamp Dazzlers by Penny Black. It is great for focal points as well as backgrounds


Watercolored the background first with Memento Luxe Teal Zeal & Pear Tart. Heat embossed the "Dazzlers", then watercolored over them. Die cut greeting is a newbie from Simon Says Stamp.

So, I guess I will call this creation of mine....Classy & Elegant.

And while I am entering challenges today...this one is also going into the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge where Anything Goes.

Have a fantastic rest of your weekend and....
thanks for stamping by!

Awesome, Penny. That background is perfect for a sympathy card and shows off the dazzlers so well.

LOVE that water colored background, Penny! The colors are subtle yet really show off your embossed images. Thanks so much for sharing with us at The Card Concept!

Hello :) I just wanted to swing by and say thank you so much for messaging me and letting me know what you used for the stitching look. Now I just need to find one as apparently they are no longer made or the stores in my area are just not carrying them. Fingers crossed I can find one :) Thanks again! Have a wonderful and blessed week!
