Hi, guys! Today I am sharing a sympathy card I was asked to make. A coworker needed a card for her child's teacher who lost her husband suddenly. When I hear stories like that it makes my heart ache. I was told my coworker really didn't know the teacher well yet, so kept it simple and went with nature as I was not sure of their faith or beliefs. I did decide to make it more bright in color than I normally do, because I thought it may lift her spirits a bit (especially coming from a young student). I did the background with various shades of Distress Stains and black heat embossed the image and sentiment.
You will notice that I used my Lovely as a Tree Stampin' Up set for the main image. I find it is perfect for so many occasions. I used watercolor paper for the panel, as I love the way it works with Distress Stains and water, and there is a lot of color play and little warping.
I am submitting this card to the following challenge: http://wordartwednesday.blogspot.com
Wishing you a good day ahead! Until next time!
