Sympathy Card with Distress Inks


Hi all! Kristina here. :)

Today's card is a sympathy card made using Distress Inks and the Peaceful Wildflowers stamp set from My Favorite Things. I don't know about you, but I try to keep sympathy cards on hand because somehow that makes it so I don't need them, ya know? It's when I don't have any on hand that I need a sympathy card. :)

Anyhow, I did a more subtle watercolor background using Distress Inks in Scattered Straw, Tumbled Glass, and Shaded Lilac. I love how these colors look together.

  1. I love seeing what colors you put together for the distressed backgrounds. They are always so pretty! Thanks for showing us about the water quantity It makes sense, but it shows me that I need to keep working on that perfect quantity to make it work the way I want it to. Thanks again Kristina and SSS.

    checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get three
    emails with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove me from that service?
    Bless you!
