Just us Girls this week has the challenge to make a Sympathy card... these are no-one's favourites because of the reason behind them, but I have just made this as the mother of one of my husband's childhood friends has just died. In fact for someone of this age, the occasion is probably more one of celebrating a long life, but there is sadness also.
The background was made with Amethyst and Old Silver Inka Gold paste placed onto a craft mat, spritzed with water and a print taken from it using absorbent card. It can be buffed to a beautiful sheen when dry. The die cuts are Memory Box and the sentiment is from a Crafter's Companion die.
