I hate to have a reason to create Sympathy cards,  but I needed a few for later this week.  These cards are inspired by Birgit.  I love her art and can recognize her art because of her beautiful style.  I have been wanting to mask off a section and sponge in some color in the corner and then overlay the image and sentiment. For sympathy cards I like to keep it clean and focus on the words.

 The first features: Ranger Archival Ink - Black, Memento Plum Dye Ink, Darkroom Door - Garden Greetings, Darkroom Door Quote Stamp - Memory

The next two are the same concept with different stamps:
 Hero Arts - Bamboo, The Stamp Barn CHSH 304 M,  Memento Plum Dye Ink, Ranger Archival Ink - Black

 I swapped the bamboo stamped image from Memento Plum Dye ink to Ranger Archival Ink - Watering Can. This was my first version of this card and I decided the gray was too strong and switched to plum.  

Thanks for stopping by.



  1. Love the idea of color blocking in a corner...not too overpowering but just a sense of another layer. Thank you!

  2. Gorgeous design and so gently apt for sympathy cards. Nicola x
