Freesia Sympathy Card for The Shabby Tea Room

Once again I used the colour combo from this week’s The Shabby Tea Room sketch. There’s ivory, white, black and the little tidbits of purple on top of the hat.

I recently bought this freesia stamp set and coloured it with the no-line colouring technique. I used a very light green Memento ink so it wouldn’t show once I finished. Then I watercoloured it with my Kuretake watercolour set. Those colours are amazing! I also have the Derwent Inktense Pencils and honestly, I am not a huge fan of them. Save your money for the Kuretake!

Our sponsor this week is Paper Sweeties! The owner is also the owner of The Shabby Tea Room so I’m sure she would love it if you checked out her little store. She has great stamps, dies and embellies. I got the sweet little flower sequins and the seam binding from Paper Sweeties.  So head on over to the challenge blog or the store to see what is on offer!

I’m also entering this in the Winnie & Walter watercolour challenge.

Enjoy, Rebecca

I never thought to actually color a stamp instead of stamping in color. That is SUCH a great idea and I am so thankful you mentioned you do it. I am excited to try it. Great job. It looks beautiful! - Peanutsmommy7 from Swapbot

Beautiful card! This is my first visit to your blog. I notice here and in your last post you reimagined the suggested Halloween theme. I'm guessing that, like me, you don't celebrate Halloween. If so, thank you. It's nice to see that you can still achieve great results.
