Butterfly Wings

Here is a sympathy card with tiny butterflies in the background with the larger image flat this time.  I tried to keep this uplifting with the colors and brightness.


Front sentiment:  Heartfelt sympathy.

Inside sentiment:  Our thoughts are with you.

The larger butterfly was stamped over the small ones and then painted in watercolor.  I like that the tiny butterflies peek through.

It's pretty neat that Unity invites friends/fans to share Unity creations on their Friends With Flair post each week.

Supplies:  Unity Stamp Co stamps from 11/2013 KOTM Strength and Dignity, May Hope Sustain You, With Her Own Wings and Heartfelt Sympathy. Also, Ranger archival ink, Canson watercolor paper, ribbon, Bazzill cardstock, Sakura watercolor paint and water brush.

Thank you for visiting.  Your comments make my day. :)

    1. Terri, it's a mix of the blue and purple in the Koi watercolor kit.

  4. What a beautiful -- and I agree, uplifting -- sympathy card. The main butterfly is gorgeous, with the background butterflies peeking through and all around.
