This is a card that I made for a relative of my husband's who passed away. I always find sympathy card difficult to make but I am pleased with how this one turned out. I looked at this stamp and thought it could be the tree of life and thought that it was so appropriate.

This is a stamp that I bought marked down at Michael's. Not sure who manufactured it. The card stock is by paper craft and not nearly as nice as the thick card stock that Stampin Up make but I had none of these colors left.

The picture is not as clear as I would have liked because the coloring didn't come out as nice as it really is. I have been working on my shading on my cards lately and used a bit of a different technique for me on this one. I colored in the stamp with my SU markers and then huffed on it and then stamped on the cards stock. I then took my aquapainter and used my Watercolor Wonder Crayons by SU. I just love them. They are my favorite thing to use to color with. I like how the markers and crayons were a bit different so it make the shadding easy. You probably can't tell that by looking at this picture though.

Thanks for looking !

Have a great day :-)
