Love & Sympathy

This was a fun card to make and but changing the sentiment it could me Mother's day or Birthday or no sentiment at all.

  • The card base is Very Vanilla(this is what I mostly use if I am using Watercolor paper) with a front(popped up with Dimensionals) of Very Vanilla that was ran through the Big Shot with the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder.
  • I cut a piece of Marina Mist with the Label Framelit and a piece of Watercolor paper with the next smaller Framelit.
  • I sprayed the Watercolor paper lightly with water, then with the image from Love and Sympathy, colored with markers I stamped it onto the paper and let it bleed, then I dried it and re-stamped the image over the first one.
  • I stamped the phrase in Not Quite Navy and stamped it on a scrap of Very Vanilla CS then cut it with a Label Framelit. I sponged the edges with Marina Mist and popped the phrase up with Dimensionals.
I really like this technique as an easy Watercolor.
