"Vintage Watercolor" Sympathy Flowers

I based this card on the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches, which I really like because it is a very "clean" sketch".

 I am using the colors from Less is More which are Blue & Brown

I love how Heather Telford does this Vintage watercoloring.  She makes it look so effortless.  You can see her tutorial HERE  My stamp is one stamp from Penny Black.   I decided not to use "extras" like text or splatters, to keep the card simple.   Heather has such talent.  It took me several times to get this to a point that I like it.  There is a very light blue wash around the vase of flowers, but it does not show in the photo.  

So my card is very basic.  Just 2 stamps.  The sentiment is from Paper Trey Ink.  

Thank you for looking.  

That's all I've got for today.  I am glad I finally got to to do a bit of paper - coloring therapy.  It's been a weird summer.
