Sympathy Card

A friend asked me the other day for a sympathy card which to be honest is something I very rarely make. 

I got the stamp set a while ago as I had heard about a stamping method which looked like a watercoloured image and thought the Close as A Memory set was going to a good set to try the technique.

Here is the card I made.

The main image is coloured in using markers and then I sprayed it with a water sprayer before stamping onto Whisper White cardstock. 

Thinking about it later I think I should have stamped off the image first to remove some of the ink, then sprayed with water before stamping the image.  Having said that I really do like the result.

Cardstock - Whisper White, Blush Blossom, Perfect Plum & Pale Plum
Ink - Perfect Plum, Pale Plum & Mellow Moss markers
Accessories - Whisper White Ribbon.

Thanks for taking the time to visit.
