Watercolour 'With Sympathy'

Here's the other that was set up and forgot to post.



Finely finished a flower using the Kuretake Gansai Tambi Watercolours. I used the same colours that Jennifer  Mcguire used when she originally showed how to use this stamp with the Kuretake Watercolours.

 Ohhhh my goodness, they are so so creamy to use and once you get going it all just comes together. I cut the watercolour paper with the stitched die then a blue cardstock with the next size up. They fit nicely on the white card base. Decided I could use this as a Sympathy card not that I need one now but I have non so thought it would be good to start with this.

Another sentiment stamped using the Misti, by golly gosh I love that little device, it stamps so beautifully and you can go back again and again to get great coverage and colour.

I love using the Altenew Stamp and will probably get the die so I can cut the flowers out.

Anyway I thought this would be good for Kathy's 30 Day Colouring Challenge Day 5

and also for the Watercoloring Blog hop/Pretty Pink Posh which is currently running. Cant believe the talent thats on show there.

I hope you enjoyed your visit.

  2. This is so soft and beautiful. Now, I have to go look at Colleen's card to see what she did with the image. Really beautiful flowers. Love the stitching too. I've been skipping all around commenting.

  10. Very nice. I think that stamp set is a good one for sympathy cards. It's hard to make up a sympathy card when you actually need one, so it's good to have a stock laid in beforehand.
