Freshly Made Sketches #185 is a card sketch this week:

FMS Final 185-001In a previous post, I had mentioned wanting to make a sympathy card, but the card for that challenge turned out to be a Father’s Day card. I have successfully completed a sympathy card for the FMS185 Card Challenge. I really think the SU! Thoughts & Prayers stamp set is fitting for sympathy and get well occasion cards. I chose the tree and the sentiment “Sharing in your Sorrow.” I went with a color combo of Baked Brown Sugar, Hello Honey, and Pistachio Pudding. It took me two efforts to make the watercolor tree portion. This was due to the fact, I usually have “ants in my pants” and can’t wait for the paper to fully dry; therefore, the inks tend to smear easily where I don’t want them to smear.

Here is the card I made:


Note: Some reinkers and stampin’ write markers are not showing up on the supply list. I used Baked Brown Sugar, Soft Suede, and Pistachio Pudding Stampin’ Write Markers and the Pistachio Pudding re-inker.
