To create my sympathy card I started with a lilac card base cut to 11 X 4.25 and scored at 5.5 inches. I stamped the Blowing Butterfly Tree on a piece of watercolor paper with Versafine black onyx ink, I love to use this ink with watercolors because it doesn't bleed. Next I watercolored the background and the butterflies with Zig Clean Color markers. I used a scallop die to cut out the panel and the placed it on my Mini Misti to add the With Deepest Sympathy sentiment.

Here is a close up of the watercolored butterflies
