Monochrome Sympathy Cards

My Favorite Things have their summer school running at the minute, so I thought I'd have a go at the Monochromatic lesson.

I've used my new floral stamp from Lili of the Valley and coloured with my watercolour pencils.  It was dead easy to colour, just a touch of colour to the flower centres and then wash it out to the edges, then some darker highlights between the flowers in the deep shade.  Looks fab, but so easy to achieve!  I also added some Wink of Stella (of course!) to the green leaves and ribbon on the little pot.

  1. Wow, Lynne! These cards are outstanding! Your coloring is so beautiful. Thank you for explaining just how you did it. I need to look at my stamps (I think I have a hydrangea stamp somewhere) and see if I can replicate what you did here. I love it SO MUCH!
