Floral Display

I've been asked to make another sympathy card.  I like to keep these cards simple and usually one layer - perfect for the current Less is More challenge.

I used one of my old wooden stamps to make this card which I've now removed from its wooden block so I can use it in my MISTI.  I had left the foam pad behind the floral stamp so I removed the foam mat from my MISTI before stamping and embossing the flowers.  After replacing the foam mat I put the card back into my MISTI to place the sentiment before stamping and embossing it.  I coloured the flowers with pink, lilac and yellow coloured pencils.  The leaves were coloured with green and yellow coloured pencils.  To finish I used a water brush to create the watercolour flowers.

To make this card I used:
     6" x 6" white matt card blank
     Hobby Art 'Floral Display' stamp
     Versafine Vintage Sepia ink
     Cosmic Shimmer clear embossing powder
     FaberCastell coloured pencils

I am entering the following challenges:
     Allsorts - Feminine
     Happy Little Stampers Watercolour Challenge - Anything Goes
     Less is More - One Layer Flowers

Sadly I had to make another one on Saturday as my friend lost her Mum.
Your card design is perfect and simple, yet beautiful. Hugs, Carol
