Grey and yellow

I needed another sympathy card. In this case I decided to use Thinking of You. It’s Kraft card on which I brushed a white watercolour wash, dried, stamped a blossom branch in grey Distress Oxide (a bit too light grey I think, but I don’t really have a darker grey).  Then I painted in the yellow flowers. Finished with Uniko sentiment.

This is the Colour Throwdown colours for this week so is entered into Color Throwdown Countdown #501

Also a simple watercoloured background for Just Us Girls #449 – Trend Week

and having added a Thinking of You sentiment, Just Add Ink #417…Just Add “T”


Sending you my love

    The whitewash shows up great on the kraft, Helen, and the flowers are lovely. Thanks for sharing your card with us at Just Us Girls.

    I like how the whitewash leaves such a rustic look – even better on the Craft background. Chantell Just Add Ink
