Butterfly sympathy

What can you say about sympathy cards? They're hard to make, at least for me. I tried to lighten this one up a bit by using the DP that is a light shade of gray/blue with white.

The butterfly is from an old SU set, Ageless Adornment. I really like the images it contains. You'll notice that my butterfly faces the opposite direction of the stamp when you use it on paper. I chose the stained glass technique for this so the image is in reverse, because once you stamp it on acetate, you apply the glitter (one color at a time) on the side of the acetate where you have ink. Then when you mount it on your card you flip it, so the glitter won't rub off. I used seven different shades of glitter on this image although it is hard to tell in the photo, you can see variation in color in person. All shades of blue and gray and black. The sentiment is from Clear Dollar Stamps Christian Sympathy set. The backing paper is silver, not gray, but a light silver so it has a bit of a shimmer to it. Thanks for looking.

This is gorgeous, love the stained glass technique and the glitter and the lighter color palette. Sympathy cards are hard to make but are I think probably one of the most appreciated cards to get.

This is lovely, Peggysue. I had to make one of these in the past week, also. I find it is a comfort just to pray while you are fiddling with the card. Your colors are soothing without being dark or gloomy.

Just beautiful! This is a technique I'll be sure to try, thanks for sharing. As I make a card for someone, I try to remember to say a prayer for him or her too. God's blessings!
