Sympathy card – Watercolor resist

It always seems like we have a sad period during the holidays.  We found out that our best friends lost their cousin to a freak farm accident right before the holidays.  Very sad.  She had only become a grandmother a couple weeks earlier, she was 48 years old.

But I made up this card to send to the family using the Technique Junkies Watercolor Resist technique again.  Love it because it is so quick and easy to make, but gives a really WOW presentation!

The background is embossed with the Pretty Petals background stamp (it is on the Dormant List right now, so you can still purchase it!)  With Heartfelt Sympathy is from Close as a Memory stamp set.  The base card is Perfect Plum, with Mellow Moss behind the White Simmer paper.  I also added two mini gold brads along the left side of the greeting.

I’m going to try to set up some posts to appear during the week.  I received a new laptop for Christmas, but I’m having trouble connecting the new wireless router to run my laptop and desktop at the same time.  Right now, I’m unplugging it to run one or the other.  Pain.  I haven’t decided if my laptop will become my dominant computer, or if I will remain with the desktop.  Decisions…decisions. 

Have a great week!
