Cheerful Colors with Sympathy — Monday Montage #62

Monday Montage Banner -- OctoberWelcome to another Monday Montage blog hop!  We are a group of ten stampers who love to share what we create with you, and all you have to do to follow along is to click on the links at the bottom of each post.

My daughter needed a sympathy card for a favorite teacher who suffered a terrible loss recently.   Sympathy cards are so hard to make, and tears were running down my face as I made this one.  But we wanted her to know that she is loved and we are praying for her.

I hadn’t used my Helping Me Grow stamp set yet, so I pulled it off the shelf, and used some pretty, cheerful colors with it.

Helping Me Grow with SympathyI watercolored the image with my aquapainter on watercolor paper.  I used So Saffron, Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive, and Soft Sky inks.

The sentiment is from the Rose Wonder set and so is the label border.

Helping Me Grow with Sympathy Close UpI kept this card really simple and the embellishments to a minimum because of the occasion.

You’re ready to hop on over to Breelin Renwick’s blog.  I always love seeing what she makes!  If you prefer to work your way backwards, you can jump back to Wendy Weixler’s blog.  Either way, be sure to work your way through all of the blogs so you don’t miss a thing!
