I really struggle with sympathy cards. I find it is hard to know when it is too much and when it is not enough. However sometimes I need to make them regardless. One such time was when my sister-in-law lost her father.
I have used Tim Holtz Distress Inks here in Weathered Wood, Milled Lavender and Bundled Sage. Hero Arts Dandelion Frame was stamped off and then stamped using Memento Tuxedo Black, with the image in the middle being from Stampin Ups Summer Silhouettes set. It is done using black embossing powder and heat setting. Stickles are around the top of the flower and the sentiment anchors it all together. RIP Bruce
