Watercolor Sympathy

DSCF1305

Yay, it’s Friday!  The weekend is almost here!  Sadly, I needed a couple of sympathy cards and I thought I would show you one of them.  This is an image from the  Crafty Secrets Bird Lovers set, one of which  I’ve never inked up!!  I stamped it in Stazon on watercolor paper and quickly colored it with reinkers:

LeAnne Pugliese WeeInklings Crafty Secrets Bird's Nest Sympathy Card

The base is Crumb Cake and I did some random stamping with a bird image and some leafy branches.  The egg image is separate; I stamped it, colored it with Soft Sky ink, cut it out and adhered it; then speckled the whole shebang with an oldie but goodie, Itty Bitty Backgrounds!

Finally, the verse is from SU’s Blessings from Heaven:

And since there is a bird on it (upper right hand corner) as well as a bird’s nest, I am going to submit this for the Kraft Journal’s bird challenge (again!).

After Cassidy’s trip to the symphony, she pulled out the harmonica Grampy gave her and wanted to lead a parade!

  2. LeAnne, this card is simple and STUNNING! I love the soft colors and feel it has. Your watercoloring is yummy, too!! I sold Itty Bitty Backgrounds years ago and have regretted it many times. Happy Friday!
