Deepest Sympathy Card

Hello and thanks for visiting today.  I created a sympathy card for my brother-in law.  He lost his brother recently and this weekend is the memorial.

I used tumbled glass distressed ink, applied it to my craft mat, added water and dipped the watercolor paper several times, drying between layers.

I took the Wild Flowers and Wings SMAK Kit and Imperfection is Beauty , Donna Downing stamps and stamped them on another watercolor paper several times so I could use the petals to layer on top of other petals.

I used a new brand of watercolor paints called CQR – they are very intense when dry.

I also took another butterfly stamps  from Unity.  Sorry, I can’t remember which kit it came from, never the less, I love that it has hearts on the wings.  and colored three to scatter them on the card.

I fussy cut all the elements and added some scattered twigs distress ink to the edges to make them pop and layered several petals to the flowers.

The leaves are also from the Wildflowers & Wings SMAK kit.

I also added a bit of distressed Stickles with a brush all around the flowers and butterflies.  I stamped the flower in scattered twigs on front of the envelope and the inside of the card.

The sentiment on the front  is from  May Hope Sustain You sentiment kit and for the inside I chose one of the sentiments from the sentiment kit Beautiful Life, Blessed Memories.

I’m entering this card in the Friends With Flair challenge at Unity Stamps.

Until next time, happy crafting!
