somber ombre watercolor (Moxie Fab, Passion for Papertrey, SSS)

Unfortunately, it's one of those times when I need a sympathy card.  Second one recently.  Ever heard deaths come in threes?  I think there might be something to that.  Shudder.

Well, I'd seen this photo from design seeds.  Minimalistic and very positive actually.  So I went with it for sympathy cards.

Noticing the blurry background and the grays in the color palette, I decided to try ombre watercoloring.

Because I haven't played at Passion for Papertrey for awhile, I decided to give their current "50 Shades of Gray" challenge a go.  Used a PTI die for the leaves (Lovely Layers and Tweet Talk!) which I cut from paper I'd also watercolored with various shades of green.  The second card has a PTI sentiment too.

And Simon Says "A Bit o' Green".  OK.

Also linking up to the Moxie Fab Card Creations Week Ombre Challenge.

Have a good one.

Supplies sympathy cards:
Paper: CS Neenah, watercolor paper
Stamps: Mia's Stempelkuche, PTI
Ink : Versafine 
Tools:  watercolors and paintbrush, tree die SSS, other dies PTIl
