MAY YOUR SORROW BE FLEETING

I made this card for this weekends Clear Dollar Stamps Colour Challenge over at PaperCraftPlanet. The link is in my sidebar. Why don't you come on over and play along.

I used NEW stamps for July from Clear Dollar Stamps called Sheltering Lights. It is such a great set to use on watercolour paper to watercolour...which is what I did on this card.

The colours for the challenge were: Baja Breeze, Real Red and Barely Banana.

I needed another sympathy card for a co-worker who is a man, so I thought this stamp set would suit the occasion and be more on the masculine side. I used the sentiment from the CDS March SOM Sweet Hummingbird.

I watercoloured my image with my aquapainter and inks. I added a few birds on the horizon with a marker and used my white gel pen to add some accents too.

I also used the sketch from this weeks MOJO MONDAY Challenge.

Card Supplies:

Stamps: CDS ~ Sheltering Lights & March SOM Sweet Hummingbird
Paper: Real Red Textured and Plain Cardstock, Baja Breeze, Barely Banana, watercolour paper
Ink: Basic Grey, Baja Breeze, Barely Banana, Real Red, Black Staz-on
Accessories: Large & Scalloped Oval punches, Ticket punch, slit punch, So Saffron Twill ribbon, brads, white gel pen, marker, dimensional, Bow Easy
