Happy Friyay! Welcome to the Simon Says Stamp Crafty Hugs Release Day 1 Blog Hop.
Today I'm revisiting a fun technique I haven't done for awhile, watercoloring with Distress Inks! I used the gorgeous new So Beautiful Background Stamp and added sympathy sentiments. The great thing about this background is that it can be used for any theme or occasion!

Watch the creation of this Distress Ink watercolored sympathy card from start to finish below or click HERE to watch in HD:
The So Beautiful Background Stamp was stamped on a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" panel of Bristol Smooth Cardstock with clear embossing ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder.
The flowers were watercolored with Distress Inks and a water brush pen. The background was watercolored with Cracked Pistachio Re-inker and a water brush pen. I allowed the background to completely air dry before die cutting with a Basic Rectangles Die.
The With Sympathy Dies were die cut from Hero Hues Amethyst Cardstock, Simon Says Stamp Blue Violet Cardstock, and Lawn Fawn Vellum. The greetings were assembled and adhered to the background as shown. The vellum allows the beauty of the background to show through.
A Reverse Sympathy Sentiment Strip was trimmed and adhered to the card with foam adhesive.
A scattering of Rainbow Party Sequins was adhered for a touch of sparkle.
The panel was adhered to a side fold card base with foam adhesive.
