Here are two sympathy cards I've made.  

This first one uses Wendy Vecchi's doily stamp in the background stamped with Archival Ink.  I then painted over it to tone it down. Stamped the flower and sentiment (both from Our Daily Bread Designs) with Archival.  Added color to the flower, sponged ink around the edges, added some gold to the very edges, wrapped it with twine and attached it to a folded white card.

This next one also starts with a Wendy Vecchi background image.  I inked it with Archival Ink and it must have reactivated some left over ink that was on the stamp and I got a variation of color. You can see that it looks more pink at the bottom and purple at the top.  I've sponged some extra ink around the edges. I then used a PaperArtsy Lin Brown stencil and Archival Ink for the leaves in the background.  The scripture is from Our Daily Bread Designs.  A piece of sticky back lace, some die cut foliage (Tim's garden greens die) and silk flower finish it up.

I agree wit Felicia, The Spirit behind them. And also what a great scripture stamp on the last one, I just love that!
I know that receiving such a personal Piece of artwork means so much to someone in mourning. We may think it is just a Card, but on the receiving end it is recognized for what it is: A really Special, thoughtful gift.
