The outline images from the Sketchy Flowers set were stamped with black waterproof ink and the stems with Forest Moss distress ink onto watercolor cardstock. I then stamped the matching solid images - slightly offsetting from the outline - using Rusty Hinge distress ink for the flowers and Forest Moss again for the leaf. After cutting out the watercolored piece with a stitched rectangle, I stamped the sentiment from the Simply Stacked Sentiments. I used a paintbrush dipped in water to soften and spread the distress ink portions and then added some even messier watercoloring around the flowers and sentiment. I thought it needed a little something else but since it was a sympathy card I didn't want to add sequins or even my go to embellishment of enamel dots so I stamped a small image from the sentiment set to direct the eye around the image. The image piece was matted onto Simply Chartreuse cardstock.
