My Deepest Sympathies - Watercoloring with tombow markers and embossing!

I love this card. I adjusted the sentiment and image for the Camp Wanna Stamp Card. I love the Charming Gardeners stamp set and it provided a lovely base to the card. First you emboss in white and then you color with the tombow markers. A little vellum cardstock for the sentiment finished of the look. Simple and understated but still pretty! And, the perfect way to share your love at a difficult time.

Tools & Supplies:
Stamp Set: Charming Gardeners, This Too Shall Pass
Cardstock: Kraft, Bristol watercolor & Vellum cardstock
Ink: Versamark, Versafine Black
Water Brush
White Embossing Powder
Large clear block (used to mix color on)

025 Tombow Marker
Heat Tool
Glue Dots
Sky Twinkle Stickers

Cutting Instructions:
Kraft: 4 1/4” x 11”
Bristol Watercolor:  5 1/8” x 3 7/8”
Vellum Cardsotock: 3/4” 4 1/4”

1. Score Kraft cardstock at 5 1/2” to make A2 card base.

Have a wonderfully creative day!
