Stenciled Sympathy

I have needed way too many sympathy cards lately. Dusty Rose card base. The stenciled panel was cut with Spellbinders Matting Basics B6, stenciled with Rounded Swirl in Skeleton Leaves ink. The mat is Wild Lilac cut with Matting Basics A6. I used a Spellbinders Oval, matte with Inverted Scallop in Grass Green. The flowers and leaves are from Stippled Leaves by Gina K Designs. I used Copics R81, R83, R85, YG00, YG05, YG17. The sentiment is also from Stippled Flowers, stamped in Jet Black.

All That You Are

Happy Birthday Watercolor

I often participate in challenges with Split Coast Stampers. This card meets two of the challenges this week. It meets WT730 Waters Edge, where I needed to do something with water. I chose to watercolor. The other challenge is CC729 Color Challenge. The colors are Tide Pool, Melon Mambo, So Saffron, and Granny Apple Green, all listed as SU colors. I have few actual SU ink colors, so usually substitute. I used Hero Arts Tide Pool for the blue background. I do own SU watercolor pencils so I used Melon Mambo and Granny Apple Green in the pencils, coloring the flowers and leaves. Sweet Corn by Gina K Designs is a match to So Saffron. I did a bit of sponging on the Birthday oval with Lawn Fawn Guava, which is a great match for the Melon Mambo. I even sponged the ribbon. I added a few sequins for something extra. The stamp set used is called All That You Are by SU. I do enjoy watercolor as it gives fast coloring.
