Deepest Sympathy


I seem to be perfecting Sympathy cards this week (expect another this coming week).
I think most people throw away birthday cards, graduation cards, etc. but I imagine most Sympathy cards are kept for many years. It is just something a person can pull out and read on days when they are missing a loved one.

This gorgeous stamp was first colored with Memento markers, spritzed with water, then stamped onto watercolor paper. I took a wet paint brush to move some of the ink around. 
I also used a slim strip of pattern paper down the side and covered the seam with ribbon.

Let's go Shopping:
Penny Black:  Pure Iris stamp, Eloquence stamp set
Imagine Crafts featuring Tsukineko:  Memento markers, Versafine Spanish Moss ink
My MInd's Eye:  Breeze 6 x 6 pad

Thanks so much for stamping by today.

Love how you used a portion of that stamp. And you are so right about people keeping sympathy cards. This one is lovely.
