Sympathy Trees

The tree images in Papertrey Ink's Through the Trees stamp set seem to show up in a lot of my sympathy cards.  For this set of cards I stamped the image of the three trees with Versamark ink and heat embossed it with white embossing powder.

Then I used painter's tape to tape a border around the edge of my cardstock.  For each card I chose three different colors of Tim Holtz Mini Distress Inks.  I stamped some of each ink onto my craft mat, added some water with my paint brush, and then painted over the embossed tree images, blending the colors together.

Once the watercolor was dry, I stamped the sentiment, which is from My Creative Time's Many Greetings stamp set.  It's also my go to sentiment for a sympathy cards.

Products used on these cards:
