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.

Watercolored Daisies Birthday Card

stump-2016-bday-watercolor-daisies

This is the second card I made for Mom’s birthday. Quite frankly, I don’t think she even looked at it, she was fighting so valiantly with the envelope! (Note to self: stop putting Mom’s cards in envelopes when they are hand delivered!)

I used my Sakura Koi Pocket Field Sketch Box (adorable little box of paints!).

Supplies: Stamps – A Muse Artstamps, Papertrey Ink, paper – Canson watercolor, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Brushed Gold, Daffodil Delight, Tangerine Tango, watercolors – Sakura Koi, dies – Spellbinders, embossing powder – Stampendous Gold Detail.
