Dynamic Duos #65 - Watercolor Sympathy Card

This week's colors at Dynamic Duos #65 are very soft and pretty.  I knew they would be perfect for a watercolor technique that I used a few weeks ago.  This technique is so easy and fun, that I wanted to use it again.

First things first, though.  Take a look at our challenge colors.

I had never thought to put these colors together.  But aren't they perfect?

I chose to make a sympathy card.  I thought the softness of the colors and the watercolor technique were a soothing combination for this type of card.

To create this card I used white watercolor paper.  It will absorb and disperse the water and ink  That will result in the blurred and uneven images you see on my card.  I sprayed the water color paper first, then sprayed the stamp after inking it.  After all the leaves and flowers were stamped, I gave the panel a spritz of pearl glimmer mist.
The sentiment was stamped after the panel had dried completely.

Ok.  Now it's time to click over to Dynamic Duos blog and see what the my team mates have created for your inspiration!
Thanks for stopping by!
