Deepest Sympathy

I thankfully haven't had to make many sympathy cards, but when I have, I've been glad do make something from my heart in the hopes that it warms the recipients.  This card was made for my daughter's friend who's uncle had passed earlier this week.  I wanted to create something that would cheer her up, as she had a big week of exams to get through.

I used a gorgeous image from Mo's Digital Pencil and coloured her with my Copics.  I accented with liquid pearls, gloss and a touch of white pen.

In the background along with the patterned paper and strips of Bazzill cardstock, I used two acetate film strips from Tanya Leigh Designz.  They symbolise memories that we have of loved ones departed.

I used a sketch from Mojo Monday - their very last sketch after providing 500 sketches over 9.75 years!!

I created the little dots on her overalls with my colourless blender, and added some wisps of fur to the dog with my white pen.

I raised the sentiment on foam dots and doodled borders with a fine point pen.
