Watercolor Trio Sympathy Card

This "Watercolor Trio" set is a great versatile set. And you know how much I love sets that are versatile. You can use this set for quite a number of other events and occasions. This time I made a sympathy card with it. But you can also make wonderful birthday cards, get well cards, thinking of you cards. It would even work for a Mother's Day card.
The technique I used here is called "Direct to Rubber." I colored the rubber stamp with markers. Always start off with the lightest color marker. You want to do this so if your marker touches another color it won't ruin the marker. Darker markers will pick up the lighter color but drawing with it on scrap paper will wipe it off the marker and the marker color will be fine. But doing it the opposite way could cause the marker to absorb too much of the other color and you could end up with a new colored marker. Something you really don't want!
I kept my image small meaning I just stamped the image on a small piece of card stock and layered it. This would even be pretty if you didn't add the layer and just stamp directly on the card stock.

The words are from the "Teeny Tiny Wishes" set. One of my favorite word sets.

This "Watercolor Trio" set is one you can have a lot of fun with. I did not see it in the new catalog. I had made this card last month and forgot about it. I'm SO good at forgetting things!!
Anyway, it's a set I will hang on to for a while because I like it and it's versatile!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
