With Sympathy

Welcome back to Carson's Creations! I am so very pleased you have stopped by today since I am sharing another one of my originals. 

Have you ever wanted a stamp set and then when you got didn't use it. Well, I had to have the MFT watercolor flowers and then I was a bit intimidated by the layering when I actually opened the package. 

I stamped a little and thought this isn't going to work. I got the MISTI for Mother's Day and thought that would help...nope! Then I watched a video about layering and voila! It clicked. I felt like one of my students who finally "got it".
Now I am no expert, but I sure do feel more comfortable with using these stamps again. I used a few different stamp colors to create the petals, the center is a brownish-green, and then the leaves and stems were a couple different shades of green. 
I added clear Wink of Stella to the center, skittles by Carri in the upper left corner, and a stamped sentiment by Craftin' Desert Divas ~ Simply Said set.
I am happy with how these flowers turned out for the first time. I am definitely going to continue to practice layering and see what else I can create. This card counts as Project of the Day #20. Better see what Sharon has posted!

Enjoy your day and take care!
Stay Creative,

  2. Hello, Georgiana! This is such a beautiful sympathy card! I love the yellow! The flowers are gorgeous! Yes, I have done that before - some stamps are intimidating to me - I have a layered flower set I've not used yet! I think I had better dust it off and try it - yours are so pretty!

  3. What a beautiful card! I love the pretty marigold color! You did a great job layering. I don't have any of the layered stamps but would love to try them.

  4. I definitely "got it"! This is beautiful! The colors are so pretty and your embellishments are just perfect.

  5. Your card turned out really pretty... I'm also intimidating on watercoloring, so I don't want to attempt to. But I love double or triple stamping from water coloring stamps. The images really turns out awesome too!

  13. Such bold happy flowers. I love that you didn't make your sympathy card in such morose colors that you usually see sympathy cards in. This is a wonderful card. A celebration of life!
