I used to never like doing Sympathy cards, but now that I have appropriate stamps and sentiments, I like doing my own.
This stamp and sentiment is from Unity Stamps.
This first one is a gelli plate background. I stamped the stamp on it and on a separate paper. I colored with colored pencils, fussy cut it and added to the background. That way you don't have to cut around all the words.
This 2nd one was a black and white challenge that Unity is doing this week. I stamped it on a piece of paper torn out of a book. Painted with DecoArt Traditions acrylic paint. Wasn't sure how the page would hold up with the paint, but I didn't use any water and it did great! I ran my scissors around the edges to give a vintage look and then glued onto black cardstock.
