So yes – I am playing along with ANOTHER global design challenge.  This week it’s a colour challenge.

GDP009 Challenge

But I HAD to play along, because this colour challenge includes all of my favourite in colours from this year.  I use the colours together in my cards quite a bit, so it was easy to play along this time as far as the colour combination went.

Unfortunately, I had to create a sympathy card for some relatives overseas. Thats not such an easy task, and my least favourite kind to make.  So I pulled out our Best Thoughts Stamp set for this challenge.

Watercolored Best Thoughts; Stampin Up

I like to keep my Sympathy cards fairly neat and clean. So I used some simple layers with card and designer paper for the base and then stamped three of the flower images and heat embossed them with white embossing powder.  I then coloured them using Watermelon Wonder Ink and an aqua painter.  Cut out layers, then layer them up with some dimensionals.

Now I know my card is for a sympathy card, but you could use this any other occasion too.

Happy crafting.
