Splitcoast Stampers Sketch Challenge #250

It has taken me a while today to get back infront of the computer--staff meeting, haircut, and a doctors appointment. I thought I would have time in between all of that but, everything was running over!! Anyway here I am to tell you all about my card today. Unfortunately it is a sympathy card!! One of my friends lost her father this past weekend--heart attack at a young age! The need for the card aside, I love how it turned out.

I use today sketch challenge from SCS. The card was created using Very Vanilla, Always Artichoke, and More Mustard. I usually do not like how my watercoloring turns out but I love it today. I stamped the flower from Organic Grace by Stampin Up in Basic Brown and then watercolored it using my Aqua Painter and More Mustard ink. I added a million dots to the center of the flower with my Choc. Chip marker and then brushed over it--I like how it still looks like little beads. Next I cut them out and arranged them with several pieces of greenery that I punched out with my Martha Stewart fern punch. I finished it off with my sentiment stamped in Always Artichoke.

Thanks for looking!! I was so thrilled with how it turned out--I hope you like it too!! DEB
