Floral Sympathy
by Laura Fulcher


Greetings friends. There are so many new Memory Box floral dies, and with spring coming up, I have the urge to make pastel cards with bunnies and chicks. However, I also like to have sympathy cards on hand, and floral dies are always a perfect match. I usually have leftover white die-cut flowers, so I thought this would be a perfect way to use some of my extras.

To make the card, I first sponged various colors of Distress Oxide inks to give a sunrise/sunset look.  Here are the inks I used:


After I layered my colors, I spritzed the whole piece with water to give it a mottled look. I think it helps blend the inks a bit more, and if you have any areas you didn't sponge very well, the mottled look helps cover up any mistakes:


I layered my white flowers on top to finish the card. Black cardstock silhouettes also work well if you prefer that look. Thanks so much for stopping by today!






Your ink blending is beautiful and using simple white flowers works perfectly for this design.
