Fluttering Sympathy Cards

Hi, guys! Hope all is well.  Today I am going to share a pair of sympathy cards I made this weekend.  I needed to make three of them as we had three losses in various families at the office.  I decided to make them using nature stamps by Stampers Anonymous, with painterly backgrounds using Distress Stains and water on watercolor paper.  What I like about making them is that each one turns out to be a bit different.  Here are two of the completed cards.


Supplies:
Stamps: Stampers Anonymous, Close To My Heart
Ink: Black Archival, Distress Stains, Distress Inks
Paper: Gina K Designs, Watercolor Paper
Misc.: Tonic Distress Tool

I was able to vary the colors of the cards as one had some pinks showing, where the other one had some more yellows.   I distressed the images and them used distress inks to set it off.

I am entering them in the following challenge:

When I saw the use of Tim Holtz products listed, I knew these would be a great fit!

Hope you have a nice day, and that you find time in the day to do something you love!
