With Sympathy

Hello everyone. Sadly,there comes a time when we make these cards. Hopefully the handmade component, can help to ease the pain the recipient is feeling during a difficult period. I will be passing this card to someone who sadly is saying goodbye to her son who passed in tragic circumstances. When called to help a friend, his life was taken. This story was on the news two weeks ago. The mother is a close friend of my mother, and is very religious. She has been a support to my family during our sad times in the last two years. Hopefully this card will bring some respite to her during this time.

I stamped the flowers and sentiment using Versmark ink and embossed both using gold embossing powder. I watercoloured the flowers using Tombow markers and then to create a vintage look, inked the edges using antique linen distress oxide ink. 

Here are some close ups...


Paper: Prima Tales of You and Me paper pad, Strathmore watercolour paper
