Sympathy Card

This week we lost two people both related to work colleagues. Both of them died on the same night at my hospital. One was a ex colleague who left over 10 years ago but still keeps in touch - she lost a very short battle with cancer. The other is a nephew of a staff member who was involved in a fight on the weekend and died under very tragic circumstances. I made two cards exactly the same on the one night. I stamped with my MISTI using Distress Inks and rotated the design. After masking, I re-stamped again with different shades of Distress Inks (Seedless Preserve, Mowed Lawn, Chipped Sapphire and Stormy Sky). I then coloured in with water and added a bit more colour. After drying, I then coloured in the background with Tumbled Glass. I sprinkled droplets of Seedless Preserve and Chipped Sapphire and added the sentiment from Hero Arts. I didn't want to add any sequins but added some dots with some dimensional paint in silver. I mounted the card to Hero Arts layering paper before adhering to the card base. This post is for A Blog Named Hero's Fan page on Facebook. Thanks for dropping in!


  1. Always sad to know when someone passes on. But I suspect your beautiful card would bring comfort to the surviving families.

  2. A beautiful card for a sad reason. It is not a happy time to have to make a card but the thought will be appreciated.
