With Deepest Sympathy

PEONY BOUQUET by Altenew

Altenew 3

I received some sad news yesterday.  A good friend of mine just told me her mother had passed.  I can’t imagine losing a parent.

I created this card for my friend.  I already had watercolored the flower and leaves a few days ago using Tim Holtz distress inks by Ranger. It was sitting inside my box of “to do” when I thought that the beautiful blue color of the flower would be appropriate for a sympathy card.

For the background, I used the Altenew’s layered medallion cover die A & B in white card stock.  I mounted it onto a cream card base.  I stamped the sentiment from Altenew’s HEARFELT SENTIMENTS stamp set. This is such a versatile stamp set with lots of greetings for different occasions. The sentiment was linear but I was able to stack the words by masking.  A tip:  I used a small piece of  transparency to mask instead of masking paper or a post it.  I found that it sticks to the part of the stamp you don’t want inked and you can wipe off the ink afterwards! I discovered this was effective when I couldn’t find my post its on my desk.

So, dear friend, if you are reading this..  My heartfelt condolences.. stay strong and I’m here when you need me.
