So hard to find the words


One of the most difficult cards to make is a sympathy card. It needs to express something that is truly beyond words, a message spoken from one heart to another. I often choose elements from nature for a sympathy card, partly because the images are soothing, but also because nature represents the full circle of our existence.

Maui Stamper Touches of Texture Sympathy

I used Stampin’ Write markers to color the leaves and the centers of the flowers, then added a lighter touch with the Aquapainter to give the blooms some depth.  I’m not a formally trained artist, and so my watercoloring is nothing more than whimsy.  I’m ok with that.
