Sympathy CardSharing in your Sorrow sympathy card is designed for the card sketch this week at i Love Card Sketches.   Unfortunately I need a sympathy card this week.

The large oval is cut from the center of the card stock.  The image is colored with markers, spritzed lightly water and then stamped onto the oval.  Then I used an Aqua Painter to added a subtle watercolor wash around the stamped image.

The stamped oval is glued to the center of the card base.

To add the color bands, I cut strips of the card stock and glued them together.  Then I glued the piece to the original piece that the oval was cut from.  I lined up the same oval framelit and cut out the colored bands to match the original oval.  The banded piece is attached to the front of the card base with dimensionals.

The simplicity of design of the Sharing in your Sorrow card makes it seem more subdued and appropriate for a sympathy card.
