With Sympathy!

Not only was I short on Get Well cards but Sympathy cards as well. I always hate when I run out as it means I've had to send some out and it's not a fun occasion. I'm really trying to use stamps that I've ordered, never used and hoarded (lol). This set is from Simon Says Stamp and is called "Delicate Flowers". 
I decided to watercolor these beauties for something different than my usual Copic colouring. I stamped the image onto watercolor paper with Wow Opaque Brilliant White Super Fine Embossing Powder and melted the powder with my heat gun. Then using Tombow markers I added a bit of colour to the image. Taking a fine tipped water brush I pulled the colour out making it look watercolored. I backed the water colour panel with some matching polka dot papers from Echo Park. A few gems finish things off. 
On this card I actually fussy cut the flowers and popped them up amongst the foliage.
On this card I stamped the flowers and then masked them off. Next I added the leaves around the flower images.
On the inside I used a sympathy sentiment from my stash and a bit of the dotted papers.

Tobow markers used:
249, 126, 847
985, 606, N5

Thanks for stopping by today!
Happy Stamping!
