Sympathy cards

Just a quickie visit to blogland tonight ... first day back at work and I'm knackered!  Mind you, most of the day was spent trying to sort through a week's worth of emails, and then of course just to improve matters my database was playing up. Grrr.

I'm cracking on with making some sympathy cards for my stash.  This first one uses this lovely Lili of the Valley hydrangea image - coloured with watercolour pencils and then I covered the flowers with my clear glitter pen.

This card uses an older Whipper Snapper stamp.  Again coloured with watercolour pencils and the purple flowers covered with my clear glitter pen.
My sentiment was a bit lost amongst the stems, so I outlined it with a white pen so it stood out more.
