Another Sympathy Card

As I mentioned the other day, I've been working on a batch of sympathy cards. After some of the flowery ones I did, I though I should include some slight more somber ones :) I LOVE this card!!!! It's probably one of the best watercoloring attempts I've ever made!! I found a card by Beate that was so pretty (here... and copied the layout for this card. The base is textured River Rock & is layered with Very Vanilla & some K&Company double-sided designer paper (one piece of which is also matted in River Rock). The tree image is stamped with black StazOn on watercolor paper. I used Old Olive, Close to Cocoa & Soft Sky ink with an aqua painter to color it in. The tree is matted in Close to Cocoa CS. The ribbon is from the Beachfront Ribbon Originals and I used a stamp from one of the Sellabrations sets for the little flourish in Close to Cocoa craft ink. Added the little half pearls to finish :) Isn't it GORGEOUS? I don't suppose this card has to be a sympathy card. I didn't end up putting any sentiment on it.

I think I'm becomming addicted to my sites now too... Several times a day I feel the compulsive urge to check the number of people who've looked at the cards in my splitcoast gallery & check for new comments... I often have to check the web counter on my blog too... Do you think this will end up in couselling? ;)

Rose, you definitely need counseling! But, for a creative genius, you're awesome! This is a really cool card. I aspire to be like you some day ... but, of course, I always have!
