Heartfelt Sympathy card by Jennifer Jackson

Floral Sympathy card

Sympathy cards are one of those types of cards that are essential to have on hand as you never know when you might need one. This card I created today was really simple to create too! I stamped the sentiment "heartfelt sympathy" using words from the Simply Sentimental stamp set into the center of a panel of watercolor paper using a waterproof black ink. Then I stamped flowers from our Beautiful Blossoms stamp around it to create a frame of flowers using distress inks in shades of purple and pale blue. Then I added in some leaves in green. Then I took a wet paintbrush and just lightly brushed water over the stamped images to spread the ink and give a soft painterly effect.  I love this effect. It gives the images a soft feel and is so easy!

To finish the card, I added some purple twine and then mounted the panel onto a blue cardstock base. You could easily change the sentiment to make this into cards for other occasions too! 


Hope you enjoyed this project today!
