Just Add Ink #455 Sympathy

Hello there, 
well I'm back after a bit of an extended but very full break! It started with attending Stampin' Ups! OnStage event in Auckland, and continued with a family holiday. However, the kids returned to school this week so back to routine it is. This week at Just Add Ink I set the challenge and I'm asking you to Just Add Sympathy. Unfortunately, we all encounter occasions when we need sympathy cards, so this will be a good opportunity to have one set aside for when you do need one.

Here's my card.

I wanted to use a cool (but not too sombre) colour palette so settled on a blue/ purple combo then added a little pop of pink, and used a canvas of white to keep it all very fresh. I decided to water colour my floral bouquet as that is a great way to get subtle colour transitions, and some extra texture as well. Sadly, this floral bundle is retiring at the end of May but I think it might hover in my stash for a while yet. Adding the stitched frame helps ground the floral bouquet and also adds another extra element of texture. I kept embellishments to a minimum adding just a few tiny pearls to the flowers.

The Just Add Ink DT have wonderful projects to show you so please go check them out and then come back and join in the challenge.
