Here is a "Normal" Sympathy card. I used traditional colors on this one (unlike yesterday). This card is for the Sketch challenge on the Stamping 411 site.

I have seen so many ladies create cards with this brayered skyline technique, so I thought that I would try it for a sympathy card. I brayered (is that a word?) the bottom of the image with Bashful Blue, and the top with Not Quite Navy. Then I stamped the reeds with Basic Black, and colored in the cattails with a black marker. The blue on the sentiment is brayered with bashful blue.
Thanks for stopping by today!!

Wow, a very beautiful Sympathy card. I may have to use this idea, but with a different stamp set. I have a Sympathy card to make & kept thinking about how I wanted to do it.
