Fresh Blooms

This is another sympathy card that I've needed to make (sorry to say!). So, hopefully this will be it for awhile! I found this Stampendous stamp at Hobby Lobby a few weeks ago (half off!). I love all of their floral stamps!

I stamped the image on watercolor paper and embossed with black EP. This makes watercoloring so easy! I used an aquapainter and the lids of my classic pads to add color. Then, I went over parts of the flower with a white gel pen. You can't tell from the picture, but I added some glitter with a Sakura Stardust Pen. The black scalloped circle was punched out with a Marvy Giga punch. I used a tiny paper punch to add a little more design to the scalloped edges. The flower and the scalloped circle are each adhered with a layer of dimensionals.

The sentiment is by Papertrey Ink. (Paper Tray set) and punched out with the large oval punch (SU). I added a scalloped edge with Fiskars scissors. This is also raised with dimensionals.

I paper pierced the top corners and bottom of card using the Crafter's Tool Kit (SU). The black velvet ribbon is from Michaels.

Paper: Daisy D's Bouquet Butternut; Old Olive, Basic Black, So Saffron Cardstocks (SU)
Ink: So Saffron, Real Red Classic Pads
