Khaki, Navy & White Sympathy Card

This card has been running around in my head for at least a month. I put a new box of tissues into one of the bathrooms, and I loved the khaki, navy and white floral design on the box.

I got hung up on the solid floral images…do I have anything like that in my stamp collection???

Finally, I pulled out an old standby retired set from Stampin’ Up, Paint Prints.

Here is the inspiration:

Carnation Sympathy Card, Take 1

I am still trying to restock sympathy cards (in the basket, in HorseSpirit Arts Gallery).

I stamped carnations and a sentiment onto watercolor paper and embossed them. Then, I loosely watercolored the carnations. I am not sure if I was “loose” enough – it might just look like I am awful at staying in the lines.

Supplies: Stamps – Papertrey Ink, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Ranger Watercolor, Stampin’ Up! Rose Red, ink – VersaFine Onyx Black, die – Lawn Fawn, watercolors – Sakura Koi, embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder clear.
