With Deepest Sympathy Tone-on-Tone Card

Unfortunately, I've been needing a lot of sympathy cards recently. To create this one, I ink blended 2 panels with Stormy Skies distress ink and added a bit of pearlescent watercolor splatter. I trimmed the first ink-blended panel to fit on an A2 card base and then die cut and embossed Altenew's Bewitching Rose set on the other ink-blended panel. I adhered the embossed die cut floral focal point to the card base and then stamped "with deepest sympathy" (from Altenew's Build A Flower: Columbine set) over it using my Sizzix stamping platform.
