Memory Monday – Simply Sketched

Such a busy weekend and Monday has flown by so quickly, here I am writing this post late …sorry!

Sadly I had to make some sympathy cards this weekend and I took the opportunity to use an old retired hostess set called Simply Sketched. With a few lovely images and a sympathy greeting it was ideal to use for this card.

I cut some Watercolour paper small enough to suit the image and sentiment, as well as allow enough room to cut the end in a banner shape. I stamped the sentiment and  image in Archival Basic Black ink. Next I water coloured using Berry Burst, Wild Wasabi and Soft Sky ink and an Aqua Painter.

I added some new Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper, which I also added a banner cut to, in behind the watercoloured piece and adhered these to pieces together using Tear & Tape.  Before attaching these to my card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals, I used Soft Sky ink to stamp the leaf image on the Pool Party card base.

A simple, yet heartfelt card.
