Two-fer Sympathy cards

It's been a bit of  brrrr chilly day today, but at least it stayed dry to get for a walk in the park with Rubydoo and for me to get the car cleaned.  It's a bad sign when there's algae growing on your car!!

Anyway, sorry folks, I'm still playing with my new Concord & 9th flowers ;)

Couldn't get a decent pic of this blue effort.  I got my pencils out for a change, don't know why, I'm never happy with my colouring with them!!   They're decent pencils, I think they might be Derwent, but they're very rough feeling on the card and it's hard to get colour out of them.  Maybe they're just duds, or maybe I need different sort of card?  Or maybe I'll just donate them to my little niece to play with!

My lines came out quite dark as I stamped my image again after colouring.  Nothing much else to say about this card, other than I added a few bits of bling for a bit of sparkle.

This one I definitely prefer, back to my trusty watercolouring pencils! 
And I think I prefer the stamp twisted sideways too!
Clear gloss added to the little flowers and then a few glossy dots added too.


  1. Super cute!!! Thank you for joining us at MAWTT, good luck!!! Amy DT

  2. Gorgeous card, thanks for joining us at MAWTT, xxx

  3. Really lovely cards Lynne and great colouring despite the pencils. I confess to donating my Derwent pencils to Len's grand daughters over in Germany! My 'go-to' pencils now are Faber Castell 'Polychromos' ones which can be blended with Sansodor Blending Fluid. They really are the 'biz' but of course not cheap. However, I do look on them as an investment (who am I kidding?!). It also pays to really shop around, the price differences between suppliers can be massive.

  4. These are both beautiful Lynne, but my preference is also the second one, mainly because it's my favourite colour though. They are perfect as condolence cards.

    Thank you for sharing in my 'bling' challenge again.

  5. Such beautiful card, the coloring looks so pretty! Thanks for sharing with us at Penny Black and More!

  6. Your cards are both pretty, but I do love the purple one, as well. But that may be because I am really partial to purple. I went to an orchid show at a local conservatory today, and the purple orchids always caught my eye. Have a great week, my friend.

  7. A beautiful creation for our 'Something New' theme at Penny Black and More challenge, many thanks for joining in.
