With Sympathy...

Hello, happy Friday!  
I have a watercolor card to share with you today.  You're not getting tired of water coloring, are you?  I hope not, since I'm having so much fun experimenting with different ways to watercolor!  I know, that sounds wierd since it's a "sympathy" card.  
This card for an artistic friend who recently lost her husband after a long illness.

For this card, I stamped the flower using Tim Holtz Distress Ink, then I used Stampin' Up marker (regular ones) to do the water coloring.  I think that most any water based marker would work.  After everything was dry, I added drops of glossy accents.
