Hello all! It's time for another Create with Connie and Mary sketch challenge. I also used a little color inspiration from the Paper Players with green and white. It seems like when you think of March one always thinks green!
I wanted to play with watercolor again so I started out with a piece of watercolor paper that I could slice down into three panels. I stamped the solid flower image from Penned and Painted in versamark ink and embossed it with clear embossing powder. I then washed some Old Olive and Pear Pizzazz ink over the top with my aquapainter. After it dried, I stamped the lined flower and leaf images from the same set and then ran over them with my wet brush. I love the way this turned out!
For the background, I embossed a piece of Vanilla cardstock with the Brick Wall EF. I used my aquapainter to "fill in the cracks" with pear pizzazz and crumb cake ink. After that dried I sponged over each brick with Crumb Cake ink to add a little more dimension.
My flowered panel ended up a little large, but I loved it so much I didn't want to cut it down. I really like how the background turned out too and wish more of it would have been visible.
Lastly I added some lace trim and vanilla satin ribbon and a sympathy banner. It seems like I've needed a bunch of sympathy cards lately.
Thanks for taking a peek and have a blessed day!
