To "paint" the background, I used shimmer spritz colors in blue, brown and olive. I used the background vertically instead of my original plan, and I think it works really well. I used this tree stamp by Inkadinkadoo in multiple layers in two different colors, Distress Ink forest moss and -I think it was- bundled sage.
I love how the darkest of the greens makes almost a shadow effect beneath the trees. When I finished, it just seemed so serene and tranquil, I knew it had to be a sympathy card. The sentiment is from the Many Greetings set by My Creative Time.
I hope you've enjoyed my watercolor projects this past week. It's been a great class. Now if I can remember to use the techniques I learned on future projects... ;)
