It's time for the mid post at the Simply Create Too Challenge where the theme is the ever popular Anything Goes. Sadly, I had need of a with sympathy card recently, so made this card. I always find it difficult to get the tone right with a sympathy card and this one was for a man who had lost his mother, so I decided to go for the darkish basecard but still keep a soft flower image.
I cut a square panel of Tim Hottz watercolour card and stamped the image from the Clearly Besotted 'Thinking of you' stamp set, before embossing it with white embossing powder. I watercoloured the flower and let it dry before layering it onto a panel cut with a stitched square die from Lil'Inker Designs. I made the basecard from Papertrey Ink tropical teal cardstock and stamped it in versamark ink with the Impression Obsession Canvas cover a card background stamp to give it a little texture. The sentiment from PTI was also embossed in white and I added a few enamel dots. I used a punch to cut some semicircles on the bottom of the card to finish it off.
