Watercolor Sympathy

Today I'm sharing a simple watercolor scene I created for one of my husband's coworkers that recently lost his mother.

After I had painted my scene (sky, grass, water) I applied some green paint to my tree stamp and pressed it into my watercolor background. The tree stamped directly on the card front has a bit more water mixed into the paint than the one I stamped separate and fussy cut.
For the inside I used two shades of distress ink to stamp my trees before adding a scripture over top. 

Supplies and Tools:
Dies:  Stitched Oval
Ink: Sonnet Watercolors, Mowed Lawn/Pine Forest Distress Ink (Ranger), Tuxedo Black Ink (Memento)
Misc. Watercolor Paper
Stamps: Lg. Pine Tree (Repeat Impressions), Lg. Pine Forest (Repeat Impressions), Thoughts and Prayers (Stampin' Up), Scripture (Biblical Impressions) Down by the Sea (Inkadinkado)

Gorgeous sympathy card. I find that they are the hardest to create, but can be the most appreciated of all the cards we send. Very peaceful scene.
