Watercolor Sympathy Card


Unfortunately sometimes we have to make these types of cards.  It’s unpleasant especially if we wait until the moment is upon us where it is a necessity.  I needed to have one of these so I thought that I would see what I could do with watercolor.  I used Fun Stampers Journey’s Lantern Treats Stamp Set #SS-0122.  I took out my Tim Holtz Distress Ink pens and a water spray bottle.  The “Deepest Sympathy” is stamped in FSJ’s Hazelnut Blend Ink, #IP-0012, using the Thoughtful Greetings Stamp Set from Fun Stampers Journey, #SS-0081.  The top paper is watercolor paper.  The middle paper is FSJ’s Watermelon Fusion, which comes in 8.5″ x 11″, #CS-0039, or 12″ x 12″, #CS-0070.  The base of the card is FSJ’s Whip Cream, which also comes in two sizes, 8.5″ x 11″, #CS-0040 or 12″ x 12″, #CS-0042.  If you would like to purchase any of these items from me you can do so by going here:  www.funstampersjourney.com/97

Please come visit again as I will be adding more cards.  Thank you and your comments are always welcome.


Best Wishes!


My doctor left for Austin on August 21st.  I had an appointment to see her on the 20th.  I made her this card to say good-bye.  She was really touched.  I made it for our “Anything Goes” Challenge.  I used FSJ’s “Artful Feathers” and “Greet and Shout” stamps.  I also used their Whip Cream cardstock.  A little watercolor pencil and spreading out the color and the card was ready to go.  I invite you to go to http://funstampersjourney.com/97 to look at the catalog and order whatever you would like.  It is a great time to join and become a coach as well.  The new catalogs are coming out in a couple of weeks.  We are all very excited.  I can’t wait to share with you again.  Toodles~
